One of the 85 kidnap victims of Wanzamai village in Tsafe Local Government Area of Zamfara State, Zainab Abdullahi, has escaped from the bandits’ camp and returned home.

The remaining 84 are still in captivity.

Speaking to The PUNCH on the phone late Friday night, an indigene of the area, Abubakar Na’allah, said Zainab escaped on Friday night and has been reunited with her parents in the village.

Na’allah said Zainab was among the kidnapped girls who were assigned by the bandits to fetch firewood to cook for the victims in the bandits’ camp.
Explaining how she escaped, he said, “When Zainab and other girls went to fetch firewood, she (Zainab) decided to run away and was able to come back home.”

Na’allah said the young girl was well and hearty although she looked pale.

He expressed disgust over the refusal of the bandits to release the abducted persons despite the N3 million they collected from the Wanzamai community.
