Not fewer than three weeks that 40 NSTA passengers were kidnapped, unknown gunmen have kidnapped over 50 passengers along the Teguba-Minna road in the Rafi Local Government Area of Niger State.
A source in Minna told journalists on Tuesday that the gunmen blocked the road at Kundu town, a few kilometres from Zungeru town.

The source also revealed that the passengers were in three vehicles who were abducted and taken to an unknown destination while the vehicles were left by the roadside.
In the same vein, bandits kidnapped an unknown number of villagers at Gidigori town in Rafi Local Government Area, burning five cars and carting away valuables.
A senior government official who wants to be anonymous confirmed the incident, adding that nothing had been heard from the bandits to enable the authorities to know the identity of those kidnapped.
When contacted, the Police Public Relations Officer, ASP Wasiu Abiodun, did not pick his calls to confirm the incident at the time of writing this report.
