A North Korea doctor attached to Tsafe Local Government general hospital in Zamfara state, Dr Jen Sunail, was kidnapped on Monday in Tsafe town.
Sunail, who was a physiotherapist in the hospital, was abducted by notorious armed bandits at the hospital staff quarters in Tsafe town of Zamfara state.
Eyewitness accounts explained that the armed bandits stormed the hospital at about 9pm and went straight to the staff quarters of the hospital and whisked away the expatriate doctor without any security interrogation.
Investigations carried out by DAILY POST revealed that Dr. Sunail was on contract basis between North Korea and Zamfara state government.
Further investigation revealed that the foriegn doctor has been with the Tsafe local government general hospital for the past three years since he took up the appointment in Tsafe general hospital.
Armed bandits have been constantly terrorising Tsafe, Danjibga, Yan doto, Yan waren Daji, Kwarin Ganuwa and Keta districts of Tsafe local government area of the state for the past seven and half years.
A resident of the local government, Mustafa Mu’azu appealed to President Muhammadu Buhari to find a lasting solution to the persistent killings and kidnappings in the state, lamenting that it is no longer a secret that Zamfara state is a notable colony of armed bandits in the whole country.
Mustapha Muazu said the rate of killings, kidnappings, raping of married and unmarried women and ladies have become a serious public concern which he said calls for public attention.
He stated that even with troops’ intervention, the insecurity situation ravaging Zamfara state is still escalating to uncontrollable level.
However, the Police Public Relations Officer (PPRO) of Zamfara State, SP Muhammad Shehu, confirmed the incident when contacted.
He revealed that the abduction has been reported to the DPO attached to Tsafe local government headquarters by the Doctor’s colleague, Dr. Li Dong.
Shehu, in a statement, explained: “On the 26/03/2019, around 945hours, Dr. Li Dong reported to the police that his colleague Dr. Jeng Sunail was not seen in his room inside the staff quarters he shared with other three persons working in the hospital.
“The Commissioner of Police, CP Celestine Okoye had directed the state criminal investigation and intelligence department (CIID), state intelligence bureau (SIB) and anti- kidnapping squad team to commence investigation and search and rescue and unveil the circumstances behind the missing of the expatriate doctor.”
