Gunmen kidnap 80 people in Kaduna

Reports say at least 80 people have been abducted by gunmen in the north-western state of Kaduna.

Road transport union officials say the people were seized as they travelled on a major highway linking northern Nigeria with the south.

They added that the gunmen stopped several vehicles, herded dozens of travellers into a nearby bush and abandoned the cars.

The police
have yet to comment on the incident

On Monday, the Nigerian army chief visited the area to improve security following a spate of attacks by armed bandits.

Gunmen killed more than 70 people in a village in the area last week.
