Again, Gunmen Attack Niger Communities


BEVERLY HILLS, February 18, (THEWILL) – In less than 24 hours after the attack and abduction of students and staff of Kagara Science Government College in Niger state, gunmen have again invaded some communities in the Gurmana ward of Shiroro Local Government Area of the State

Sarkin Zama, Bakin Kogi (Lagbe), Siyiko, and other adjoining villages were Wednesday evening attacked by gunmen, who stormed the villages in their large numbers.

The operation which lasted for hours was said to have recorded some casualty, the scale of which could not be immediately verified at the time of filing this report.

Concerned Shiroro Youths’ group leader, Sani Kokki, said some died while others who sustained various degrees of gunshot injuries were rushed to various health facilities for medical attention.

Kokki said scores of others were also abducted and taken to unknown destinations.

“Countless deadly attacks have become daily occurrences, thereby compelling the affected victims to live at the mercy of hydra-headed monsters. Defenceless, unarmed, and peaceful locals have been abandoned to their fate,” Kokki added.
