Bandits Abduct Over 50 Passengers In Fresh Niger Attack

Gunmen, suspected to be bandits, have again abducted many passengers along the Tegina-Minna road in the Rafi Local Government of Niger State.

A source on Tuesday told journalists in Minna that the gunmen blocked the road at Kundu town, a few kilometres from Zungeru town.

The passengers, said to be over 50, who were reportedly in the three vehicles, were taken to an unknown destination while the vehicles were left by the roadside.

This comes less than three weeks after 40 NSTA passengers were kidnapped by bandits.

In another development, armed bandits kidnapped unknown numbers of villagers at Gidigori town in Rafi Local Government Area burning five cars and carting away valuables.

Confirming the incident, senior government officials who craved anonymity said nothing has been heard from the bandits to enable the authorities to know the identities of those kidnapped.

However, the police in the state had yet to confirm the reports as at the time of filing this.
