The Katsina State Police Command has confirmed the abduction of 28 children from Kasai, Batsari Local Government Area of the state and subsequently rescued. 

The Police Public Relations Officer, ASP Abubakar Sadiq confirmed this to newsmen in Katsina, Tuesday.

According to him, “on the 1st of April, 2024, at about 1030 hrs, about twenty-eight (28) girls who went to the outskirts of Kasai village, Batsari LGA, Katsina State, with intent to fetch firewood, were abducted by kidnappers.

“Upon receipt of the report, the Commissioner of Police, Katsina State Police Command, CP Aliyu Abubakar Musa, psc+, swiftly deployed operatives to the scene, tasked with the unhurt rescue of the victims. Thanks to the unwavering efforts and increased pressure exerted by the command, the victims, who were held against their will, have now regained freedom and are safe and sound.

“The collaborative effort of the dedicated rescue team, in conjunction with the strategic approach taken by the command, resulted in the release of all the abducted victims. The abductors, following the escalation of pressure and the concerted actions of the command in collaboration with all relevant security stakeholders in the State, ultimately released all the victims on the same day at about 2240hrs.

“This success is a testament to the perseverance and commitment of the command as well as everyone involved in the operation. Efforts to ensure the safety and security of the community and the State will continue unabated. Further development will be communicated as the investigation proceeds.”
