Reports from Kaduna state in northwestern Nigeria say a deputy police commissioner and his wife have been kidnapped. The officer works in neighbouring Zamfara State but was abducted from his car.

This incident happened as security agencies say they are taking steps to address the security situation in the state.

The Kaduna state police command has yet to confirm the abduction but a security source in the state told the BBC that the deputy commissioner was kidnapped near a forest between Funtua in Katsina state and Birnin Gwari town in Kaduna state.

Recently kidnappings have become commonplace along the Abuja-Kaduna road as well as in other locations around Kaduna.

In November last year former Nigerian foreign minister Bagudu Hirse was kidnapped in Kaduna state.
