Gunmen abduct permanent secretary in Niger ministry of transport and his son
Gunmen have kidnapped Ibrahim Garba Musa, the permanent secretary in Niger’s 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
She said the governor also “decried the barbaric and atrocious acts of bandits in Shiroro and Munya Local Government Areas recently, where many villagers were slaughtered, burnt and some kidnapped”.
His abduction comes barely two months after Sani Idris, the state’s commissioner for information, was abducted by suspected bandits.
