No fewer than fifty persons have allegedly been kidnapped by armed terrorists in Kuchi, Munya local government area, Niger State.

It was gathered that the terrorists in their large numbers invaded the town at about 2am on Friday and abducted many people.

The terrorists reportedly stormed the town while it was raining and instantly launched a house-to-house operation and assembled their victims for onward movement to their enclave.

Our correspondent gathered that the terrorists alongside their captives are reportedly trapped on their journey at a nearby Dangunu River, which has overflown its banks due to the heavy downpour.

Confirming the incident, Sani Abubakar Yusuf Kokki, Co-convener, Concerned Shiroro Youths of Niger State said the gunmen invaded the community at about 2am while it was raining.

He said although there is no report of casualties, the estimated number of people kidnapped is put at about fifty (50).

“Reinforcement is immediately needed at the moment to fiercely engage them at their exit route where they are currently stranded. Mobilize able-bodied vigilantes to the scene for a gunfire encounter!"

Kokki then called on the authorities concerned in the state should swing into action and do the needful.

Meanwhile, the state Commissioner for Internal Security and Humanitarian Affairs, Emmanuel Bagna Umar has confirmed the kidnap, saying security agencies have responded to the call from residents of the area.

Also, the state Police Public Relations Officer, PRO, Wasiu Abiodun who confirmed the kidnap said armed bandits and terrorists attacked Kuchi village via Sarkin-Pawa, Munya LGA and abducted nine persons.

He said the Police tactical teams and vigilante men have been drafted to the area and are currently trailing the hoodlums to rescue the victims.
