Fulani bandits attacked the convoy of the emir of Bungudu Hassan Attahiru along Abuja Kaduna highway near Olam Factory just few kilometers into the city. The Emir has been abducted.
Mr Attahiru is a monarch in Zamfara State.
The attackers opened fire on the convoy and successfully demobilized some of the vehicles, a source told an online media.
The federal government launched an attack to flush bandits out of Zamfara in recent days but their activities has continued unabated in Zamfara.
