Gunmen have again abducted over 50 passengers along the Tegina-Minna road in the Rafi Local Government of Niger State.
this is coming less than three weeks after 40 NSTA passengers were kidnapped and later released a week later.
According to a local resident, the gunmen blocked the road at Kundu town, a few kilometers from Zungeru town and abducted the passengers that were in the three vehicles, and took them to an unknown destination while the vehicles were left by the roadside.
In a similar vein, 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.
