Troops of the Joint Task Force Operation Hadarin Daji (OPHD) have thwarted an attempt to abduct 10 people in Tsafe town of Zamfara on Tuesday.

According to the Information Officer to the Operation, Lt. Suleiman Omale, in a statement issued in Gusau on Wednesday, the troops responded to a distress call and were able to overpower the abductors.

“Responding swiftly to a distress call on the night of March 12, 2024, OPHD troops engaged in a fierce gun duel with the bandits upon arrival in Tsafe town.
