Must read

Bandits have abducted not fewer than 50 people in an early morning attack on Bassa community in Shiroro local government area of Niger state.

The bandits stormed the community in large numbers in motorcycles in the early hours of Thursday, January 28, 2021.

The people were getting set for the day’s activities, which were disrupted by the bandits, causing them to run into the bush for safety.

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

He lamented the bandits attacked the town, causing mayhem on unsuspecting peaceful, unarmed, and defenceless locals.

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

Kokki also disclosed that on Tuesday, some other communities in Bassa/Kokki were attacked with many losses recorded.

He said that Shiroro local government area is in dire need of help, as people continue to live at the mercy of the bandits.

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