Gunmen have kidnapped Ibrahim Garba Musa, the permanent secretary in Niger State Ministry of transportation.

He was abducted in the early hours of Saturday, October 2, alongside his son in the Zungeru area of the state, where they had gone to for a wedding ceremony.

Mary Noel-Berje, Chief Press Secretary to Abubakar Sani Bello, Governor of the State, confirmed the incident.

The abduction comes barely two months after Sani Idris, the state’s commissioner for information, was abducted by suspected bandits.
