The bandits, who abducted 20 children from Kusherki in Rafi Local Government Area of Niger state, are demanding a ransom of N40million for their release.
The children, who are said to have been in captivity for over 20 days, are between ages 4 and 10 years.
A resident of the community, Auwal Usman, in a telephone interview on Tuesday said the young children are faced with untold hardship in the hands of their abductors.
