September 25, 2023

In a continued effort to combat the rising insecurity in Zamfara State, the Joint Task Force (JTF) of Operation Hadarin Daji has successfully rescued seven more female students of the Federal University of Gusau (FUGUS). This rescue mission comes after a distressing incident where bandits abducted over 20 female students from an off-campus hostel in Sabon Gida village, Bungudu LGA of the state.







Earlier reports by LEADERSHIP had highlighted the initial abduction, which occurred in the early hours of a Friday. Security experts like Zagazola Makama, who specializes in counter-insurgency in the Lake Chad region, have been closely monitoring the situation. According to Makama, the seven students were freed from captivity alongside three male workers of Gupran Engineering Services Ltd.

This latest rescue operation follows the successful retrieval of six female students on the same Friday shortly after their abduction. In total, the JTF has now rescued an impressive count of 13 students.

The newly liberated students have been identified as follows:

  1. Rukayya Sani Batola
  2. Merry Monday
  3. Maryam Salawuddeen
  4. Salamatu Jummai Dahiru
  5. Fiddausi Abdulazeez
  6. Amamatullahi Asabe Dahiru
  7. Ketura Bulus
  8. Felicia Sunday
  9. Jamila Ahmad
  10. Aisha Aminu Ujong
  11. Mariya Abdulrahman Usman
  12. Usaina Abdulrahman
  13. Saadatu Aminu Abubakar

This ongoing effort by the JTF serves as a beacon of hope in the fight against insecurity in the region, with authorities and citizens alike eagerly awaiting the safe return of the remaining abducted students.
