Gunmen abduct 50 passengers in Niger state

Over 50 passengers have been abducted by unknown gunmen along the Tegina-Minna road in the Rafi Local Government of Niger State.

The passengers who were in three vehicles, were abducted by the gunmen who blocked the road at Kundu town, a few kilometres from Zungeru town. 

Channels Television also reported that armed bandits kidnapped unknown numbers of villagers at Gidigori town in Rafi Local Government Area, burning five cars and carting away valuables.

A senior government official who craved anonymity said nothing has been heard from the bandits to enable the authorities to know the identities of those kidnapped.

This is coming less than three weeks after 40 NSTA passengers were kidnapped.
