Bandits Invade Niger Community Again, Kill One, Abduct 10

Bandits have again invaded Gurmana Community in Shiroro Local Government Area of Niger State, killing one person and abducted 10 others.

The bandits reportedly invaded the community Friday afternoon on motorcycles and shot sporadically to scare villagers.

Both the co-convener of the Shiroro Youth Associations, Yussuf Abubakar Koki, and Spokesperson of the Coalition of Shiroro Associations, Comrade Salis Sabo, have confirmed the incident.

They cooly moved from house to house and carted away properties and then set some houses and barns of yams and other foodstuffs set ablaze.

A top member of the local vigilante named Idi Fylo narrowly escaped being killed by the bandits but his house and other valuables were set ablaze

Since the killing of six soldiers and a policeman by bandits in Allawa and Bassa last week, the bandits had been raiding villages in the communities almost on a daily basis.

A lot of the villagers have fled.
