Police in Katsina State say they have rescued five persons suspected to have been kidnapped while travelling from Abuja to Zamfara.

Police spokesman, ASP Abubakar Sadiq-Aliyu, confirmed the rescue in Katsina on Tuesday.

He said a police patrol team rescued the victims on Monday from Katsina Forest in Kankara Local Government Area where they were chained down.

“The rescued victims were travelling from Abuja to Zamfara on March 9 when they were kidnapped at Kushere village in Zamfara.

“The victims were taken to Katsina forest and chained, but were eventually rescued by our operatives,’’ he said.

He added the rescued victims were responding to medical treatment as efforts were being made to reunite them with their families.
