About 12 Assistant-Superintendent of Police(ASPs) has been abducted by gunmen on their way from Borno State to Zamfara State.

According to a BBC report, the officers were said to be going for a special operation in Zamfara State when they were kidnapped by the Gunmen.

The incident was reported to have happened 12 days ago but became public knowledge on Tuesday.

According to the wife of one of the abducted police officers, who said that for about 3 days, she did not hear from her husband and was worried which made her go to a police barracks in Borno where she learnt that her husband had been abducted.

She was also quoted as saying she got a phone call from her husband who asked her to raise ransom money by selling their home.

“He called me on Wednesday and told me that he was in the hands of the kidnappers,” she said.
She said her husband told her that if she could not raise at least N1 million, “there will be trouble”.

According to the woman, a police officer later called her to request that she gets N800,000 for the release of her husband.

“I can’t tell you I have any other information. We are in a state of frustration,” she was quoted as saying.
Frank Mba, force public relations officer, is yet to comment on the incident.
