Bandits have again invaded Gurmana Community in Shiroro Local Government Area of Niger State, killing one person with 10 others abducted.

The bandits were said to have invaded the community in broad daylight yesterday on motorcycles and shot sporadically to scare villagers. They moved from house to house and carted away properties.

Besides the killing and kidnapping of the people, some houses and barns of yams and other foodstuffs belonging to the villagers were also set ablaze.

A top member of the local vigilante simply called Idi Fylo narrowly escaped being killed by the bandits but had his house and other valuables set ablaze.

Another prominent member of the community, Maiangwa Sarkin Zamma who was reportedly shot in the right arm was immediately rushed to a nearby clinic for treatment.

Since the killing of six soldiers and a policeman by bandits in Allawa and Bassa last week, the bandits had been raiding villages in the communities almost on a daily basis forcing the villagers to flee their abode.

Co-convener of the Shiroro Youth Associations, Yussuf Abubakar Koki, and Spokesperson of the Coalition of Shiroro Associations, Comrade Salis Sabo, when contacted separately confirmed the incident.

All effort to reach the Niger State Police Public Relation officer proved abortive as all calls and message to his phone were not responded to as at press time.
