Niger: Christian Missionary Kidnapped by stephendellas(m): 7:35am On Oct 17, 2016
Missionary Jeffery Woodke was abducted from his home in Abalak in western Niger at around 9pm local time on Friday. The American aid worker kidnapped by gunmen in Niger was a Christian missionary who had links to Youth with A Mission (YWAM), a spokesman has confirmed.

Woodke – who has lived in Niger since 1992 – has been working with JEMED, a local organisation linked to YWAM which helps people struggling from such issues as drought, lack of access to education, and disease. "Jeff has spent over a quarter of a century involved in missions ministry," a biographical thumbnail of Woodke on the Redwood Coast website said. "He has committed the past 25 years of his life to a ministry he founded in Niger amongst a number of unreached people groups."

Residents reported hearing gunfire near the aid worker's house late on Friday. The town mayor, Ahmed Dilo, told Reuters that gunmen first came on a motorbike to kill the guard before the truck came to take Woodke away. The interior minister said one National Guard stationed at the house was also killed.

"At the time of the abduction, two other men were killed including a local Tuareg night guard and a national guard. It is not known where he has been taken and no group has yet claimed responsibility for his abduction" Thompson said.

A statement from Niger's interior ministry on Saturday said after being abducted, Woodke was driven across the desert towards Mali. "These criminals are now heading towards Mali. Our forces are on their trail," said interior minister Mohamed Bazoum.
