Nigerian Army Rescues Kidnapped Students Of Federal University Of Gusau


Brave men of the Nigerian Army have freed four students of Federal University of Gusau (FUGUS) who were kidnapped by armed bandits on Saturday in Zamfara State.

The students were abducted in their off-campus residence at Sabon Gida in the Damba area of Gusau Local Government Area of the state.


According to PRNigeria, a defence intelligence said that in a timely and swift response to distress calls, the troops of Operation Hadarin Daji immediately blocked all major exit routes and engaged the armed bandits.

“The troops immediately mobilized and formed a blocking position at possible withdrawal routes which led to a heavy gun duel with the terrorists.

“Troops’ superiority forced the terrorists to abandon the victims and flee. During the encounter with the terrorists, two of the students escaped while the two others – a male and female – were safely rescued by the gallant soldiers,” a source told PRNigeria.


A spokesperson for Operation Hadarin Daji, Captain Yahaya Ibrahim, when contacted by PRNigeria confirmed the success of the rescue operation.
