kidnapping in Niger

Six men came across the border on motorbikes with AK47s and they spoke  Hausa and English. Most likely they had crossed over the border from Nigeria in order to kidnap the American missionary from the village in of Massalata.

The governor of the area told media outlets that the men took the US citizen with them in the direction of the Nigerian border after demanding money.

The missionary had been living and working in the area of Massalata for a year or more. The rest of his family seems to be fine except for the trauma of seeing their loved one taken.

Please pray for him.
