Suspected bandits have reportedly abducted over sixty persons and set ablaze houses and farm produce in Ruwan Tofa village of Maru local government area of Zamfara State, on Thursday, March 4.

This latest abduction came in the aftermath of the rescue of 279 abducted Jangebe School Girls, through the Zamfara state government’s peace initiative.

A source who confirmed the development to TVC NEWS said half of the village was razed, as well as vehicles and shops.

The source says four wives and children from the same family were abducted, leaving behind only a seven-year-old.
