Gunmen on Wednesday morning kidnapped six staff of West African Ceramic Company in Ajaokuta Local Government Area of Kogi State.
The incident happened in the early hours of the day within the Emiworo community under the Ajaokuta Council.
It was gathered the workers were abducted while loading stones which were expected to be delivered in the ceramic site located at Itobe in the same council area.
The suspected criminals who were fully armed whisked the six victims away to a yet-to-be-disclosed destination.
Confirming the incident, the Police Public Relations Officer, Kogi State Police Command, DSP William Aya, said officers are operating in collaboration with other security agencies to see that the victims are rescued.
According to him, the operatives are still combing the bushes in the local government to see if the gunmen might be lingering close by.
Meanwhile, the Minister of Aviation under the Goodluck Jonathan administration, Femi Fani-Kayode, has warned the federal government over the rearrest of the leader of the Indigenous People of Biafra, Nnamdi Kanu.
The former minister who is known to be close to the IPOB leader warned that he must not die in custody.
Fani-Kayode in a post on his Twitter account charged the Federal Government to ensure that Kanu is treated with decency and respect while in custody.
“It is no longer news that @MaziNnamdiKanu has been arrested and detained. I advise the FG to ensure that he does not die in custody and that he is treated with decency, decorum and respect,” he tweeted.
