Bandits have abducted 18 people who were travelling in three commercial vehicles at Kundu town, a few kilometers from Zungeru town.
Sources said the victims ran into a blockade by the bandits in Kundu, the same town where 42 passengers travelling in the Niger State Transport Authority (NSTA) vehicle were kidnapped over three weeks ago.
The passengers in the three vehicles were abducted and taken to an unknown destination, while the vehicles were left by the road side.
The above happened even as one person was killed, while several others were kidnapped when bandits raided Manta town in Shiroro Local Government Area Monday evening.
The bandits also ransacked the houses of the villagers, stealing foodstuff and other valuable items.
