Abuja, Nigeria (CNN)Around 100 women and children abducted in early June by gunmen known locally as "bandits" have been rescued, police authorities in Nigeria's northwestern Zamfara State said.

Zamfara police spokesman, Mohammed Shehu, told CNN on Wednesday that the victims — most of whom are nursing mothers — were released Monday after being held by their captors for six weeks.

He said their release was "unconditional" and no ransom was paid by the state.

Hundreds of schoolchildren have been abducted and subsequently released by ransom-seeking criminal gangs, but many state governments deny paying ransom to kidnappers.
