The Zamfara Police Command said it has rescued three police officers of the command abducted by unidentified gunmen from their station in Tsafe Local Government Area of the state.

The state’s Commissioner of Police,  Shaba Alkali, confirmed that the officers were rescued by the police in Gusau on Saturday.

The News Agency of Nigeria recalls that unidentified gunmen had, on September 4, attacked the police outpost in Keta village in Tsafe Local Government Area and abducted the three police officers.

The officers are: ASP Ahmad Shehu; the station’s officer in charge of the outpost, Sgt. Safiyanu Bara’u; and Cpl. Musa Balarabe.

The commissioner said the officers were in good health, except Balarabe, who was wounded as a result of a gunshot, adding that he was receiving medical treatment.

According to him, the rescue process was done through the cooperation of the public. “You know, in the police, we have various strategies on security matters.

“We really enjoyed the support and cooperation given to us by the people in the area in rescuing them; that is why we are emphasising on community policing.

“The general public has greater role to play in police activities to maintain peace and stability,” Alkali said.

He urged residents to continue to cooperate with the police and all other security agencies in order to maintain peace and stability in the state.

Alkali also urged members of the public to always give useful reports on security issues in their areas to the police.
