Secretary to the Government of Niger state, Alhaji Ahmed Ibrahim Matane confirmed the abduction of the state Commissioner for Information and Strategy, Mallam Idris Sani Mohammed by gunmen from his resident at Baban Tunga in Tafa local government area of the state.

He confirmed that the Commissioner was abducted at about 1:00am during the downpour which lasted till this morning.

“He was kidnapped at the early hours of today around 1:00am at Baban tunga in Tafa local government. Security are already on the trail of the kidnapper, we hope they would discover him soon and rescue him unharmed,” he said.

The gunmen said to be numbering about 20, stormed the residence of the Commissioner under the heavily downpour and shot sporadically into the air before abducting their victim in front of his second wife. His first wife was said to away when the incident occurred.
