Twelve police officers have been abducted by unknown gunmen.
According to BBC Hausa, the twelve assistant-superintendents of police (ASPs) were abducted on their way to Zamfara from Borno state.
BBC Hausa reported that one of the abductees called his wife and asked her to raise N1m, noting that there would be trouble if she fails.
“He called me on Wednesday and told me that he was in the hands of the kidnappers.
“I can’t tell you I have any other information. We are in a state of frustration,” she was quoted as saying.
