Thirty Three persons abducted by armed bandits have been released.
This in line with recent peace building efforts by the State Government and the Police.
They have regained their freedom due to the recent Peace building initiative adopted by the Zamfara State Government and Security agencies as part of measures to end Armed Banditry, Kidnapping and Cattle Rustling.
The Programme involved a series of peace building meetings with Traditional Leaders, the Miyetti Allah Cattle Breeders Association as well as the Leadership of Civilian JTF and YanSakai.
The recent meeting in Anka Emirate Council led to the release of Thirty Three People including women and Children who had been in Captivity for more than Seventy days.
The Zamfara State Commissioner of Police Usman Nagwaggo says the Police will continue with the peace building mission until calm is completely restored in the State.
He disclosed that remarkable progress has been achieved so far as two hundred persons have regained their freedom.
Residents are optimistic that the peace building initiative will go a long way in addressing the Current Security Challenges facing the state.
