Gunmen suspected to be bandits have abducted the Zone ‘C’ chairman of the All Progressives Congress (APC) in Niger State, Mallam Aminu Bobi in Mariga local government area.
The abduction occurred around 5 pm on Saturday while Bobi was supervising workers in his farm.
Eyewitnesses said 18 gunmen invaded the farm in six motorcycles, shooting sporadically.
They were said to have picked only Bobi, leaving his workers behind.
Efforts to get Niger Police Spokesman DSP Abiodun Wasiu proved abortive.
He didn’t pick calls or responded to text messages.
