IGP deploys helicopters, ground troops to rescue Zamfara school girls

The Inspector-General of Police (IGP) Mohammed Adamu, has ordered the immediate deployment of two  operational surveillance helicopters to Zamfara State.

This is in addition to the personnel of Operation Puff Adder II earlier deployed to the State to support efforts by the Command to combat banditry, kidnapping and other related crimes.

All these efforts are aimed at locating and rescuing the students of Government Girls Secondary School, Jangebe, Zamfara State, abducted in the early hours of Friday, 25th February, 2021.

 While condemning the what he described as the barbaric and callous abduction of the innocent female students, IGP Adamu assured that the Police and other security forces will not relent until the abducted students are successfully rescued and reunited with their families.

The joint rescue operation is being carried out by the Police, the Military and other members of the law enforcement community with support from the State Government and other Stakeholders.

The IGP, in a statement signed by the Force Spokesman, Frank Mba, has called for calm and enjoined members of the public, particularly the people of Zamfara State, not to hesitate in availing the Police and the law enforcement community with useful information that can assist in the rescue of the abducted school girls.
