Dibal Yakadi, commissioner of police in Niger state,  says gunmen kidnapped seven people in Munya local government area of the state on Friday.

Yakadi said two brothers – Garba Yakassai and Umar Yakassai – and five others were kidnapped on two different occasions.

He said Garba and Umar were kidnapped in a Toyota Corolla car with registration number YAB 669 GB, disclosing that the car was abandoned on a bush path.

Yakadi said five passengers in a Toyota Sienna commercial bus were equally suspected to have been kidnapped.

He said identities were yet to be ascertained as a special squad, mobile policemen and the police in Sarkin Pawa had been drafted to rescue the victims.

The kidnappers came in the morning with sophisticated weapons shooting indiscriminately and blocked Minna-Sarkin Pawa road before taking the victims into the bush.

He called on residents of the local council to offer the useful information that would assist in the rescue of the victims.
