The abduction of the village head was confirmed by Bauchi State Police Public Relations Officer, Ahmed Wakili.

Wakili said the gunmen attacked Zira village which shares a border with Plateau State on Saturday night and carried out the act.

It was also learnt that the Commissioner of Police in the state, Umar Sanda, has dispatched a team of detectives and other operatives to the area while the Divisional Police Officer (DPO) has since been directed to begin the search and rescue of abductees.

Wakili said “presently, our men are combing the bush in search of abductees and residents should be assured that the victims will be rescued alive.”

The command is also appealing to residents to provide the police with useful information and urged the public to remain calm.
