Bandits raid Niger community, kidnap 50

Bandits have abducted over 50 people in a recent attack on Bassa community in Shiroro Local Government Area of Niger State.

It was learnt that the incident happened when bandits reportedly stormed the community in large numbers on motorcycles in the early hours of Thursday.

The people were said to be getting set for the day when their activities were disrupted by the bandits causing them to run into the bush for safety.

The Co-convener Concerned Shiroro Youths, Sani Abubakar Kokki confirmed the attack describing the bandits as terrorists.

He, however, stated that the number of people kidnapped is not yet ascertained but said they were many.

Kokki also disclosed that on Tuesday, some other communities in Bassa/Kokki were attacked and a lot of losses were recorded.

He said that Shiroro Local Government Area is in dire need of help as they continue to live at the mercy of the bandits.

When contacted, the Police Public Relations Officer, Abiodun Wasiu said he will get back to the Reporter when he has details about the incident.
