Gunmen suspected to be bandits have abducted the Niger State Commissioner for Information and Strategy, Mallam Idris Mohammed.
The Commissioner was reportedly abducted on Sunday night by heavy armed men who invaded his residence at Baban Tunga, Tafa local government area of the State.
Sources say the armed men, numbering about 20, stormed the residence of the Commissioner at about 11: 00am under a heavily downpour and shot sporadically into the air before abducting their victim in front of his second wife.
In a statement confirming his kidnap, Mary Noel-Berje, the chief press secretary to the Governor, said security agencies have been mobilized and are on the trail of the hoodlums.
