Some alleged bandits invaded communities in Niger State, where they reportedly killed 11 people and kidnapped four women.

According to close sources, the gunmen stormed Kudodo, Galapai, Dnakpala Makera and Dnalgwa communities in the early hours of Saturday, at about 4 a.m.

They ransacked houses in those communities one after the other looting properties and also kidnapping four women. Locals are yet to receive any call demanding ransom concerning the four kidnapped women.

The Senator representing Niger-East Senatorial District, Alhaji Sani Musa, who confirmed the attack to newsmen, said that the situation was getting out of hand.

The lawmaker lamented on the endless killings and called on the Federal Government and security agencies to bring up strategies that will be used to combat these attacks.

He said:

“As the attacks continued, more villagers in my constituency are awaiting their fate as no sign of succour seems to be coming their way.

“It is confirmed that the bandits are attacking all through the night to this afternoon.

”The insecurity in Nigeria has continued to be a cause of worry for citizens of Nigeria, most especially in the northern region of the country.”
