Armed bandits have allegedly stormed Rafi Local Government Council of Niger State and invaded the palace of the Emir of Kagara.
The bandits, numbering over 60, stormed the palace around 6:00 pm on Tuesday evening on 20 motorcycles, shooting sporadically.
The Emir, Alhaji Ahmed Attahiru (II) was not in the palace as at the time of the attack. He is said to have been away for almost two weeks.
The bandits, it was gathered, came through Attahiru Primary School towards Madaka road leading to the bush where they abducted the students of Kagara some months ago.
