According to reports gotten from a source around the area, the bandits ran into three commercial buses packed with at least 50 passengers, after they have blocked the road at Kundu town, which is a few kilometres from Zungeru town, in Niger state.
Taking to twitter, Reno Omokri reacted by asking who is in charge of Nigeria. The former presidential aide, while reacting to the abduction said that when bandits give conditions to the government, the helicopter and gunships that are meant to stop them are instead in orlu, where there are no bandits.
It is sad that almost on a daily basis, these bandits get into communities in these local government areas, and worst of all is that a lot Of these kidnappings are not reported, because those areas are sometimes hard to reach.
As it stands, Niger state arguably has the largest landmass in Nigeria, which makes it hard for the country's already overwhelmed security forces to rescue local residents that are being randomly abducted and killed by the armed gunmen.
