The abduction occurred on Sunday evening when the bandits waited in ambush as the public transport vehicle ran into the blockade in Kundu village, near Zungeru in Yakila District of Rafi Local Government Area of the state.

Officials of the drivers union in the area said the victims were travelling in a bus of the Niger State Transport Authority (NSTA) when they ran into an ambush by the bandits.

In a video clip released on Tuesday, the bandits were seen wielding several rocket-propelled grenades (RGPs) while threatening the passengers who were begging the Nigerian government “to do something” about their release.

“God is the greatest, all praise is due to God alone,” a member of the banditry group said in the video which shows the fully armed fighters speaking in Arabic, Hausa and Kanuri.

Meanwhile, some armed bandits dressed in military uniforms have reportedly attacked and abducted many students of Government Science College (GSC) Kagara, in Niger State.

It was learnt that some teachers and their family members residing within the college staff quarters were also abducted by the gunmen on Wednesday morning.
