A yet-to-be identified policeman and three others have been killed while many others were abducted in a terrorist attack on Gwada community in the Shiroro Local Government Area of Niger State.

The attack was said to have occurred when Muslim faithful were breaking their Ramadan fast on Saturday evening.

The spokesperson for the Coalition of Shiroro Association, Salisu Mohammed Sabo, said the attack lasted for over 4 hours unhindered.

He added that the attack led to the abduction of many persons, one being a businesswoman whose shop was looted by the terrorists, and another the son of one of the officials of the North-South Power Company.“With this attack, it means that only Kuta has not been attacked in Shiroro. Gwada is very tensed and people are considering moving to Kuta as an alternative,” Sabo said.16/04/2022
