Again, suspected gunmen Kill One, abduct many in Niger

Suspected gunmen have again attacked some communities killing at least one person, two others injured and many abducted in Shiroro Local Government Area of Niger State.

According to THEWATCH NEWS, this is coming barely 24 hours after the abduction of 41 school students, teachers and family members from Government Science College Kagara.

The villages attacked include Sarkin Zama, Lagbe (Bakin Kogi), Siyiko, Kokki and other adjoining villages, all in Gurmana ward of Shiroro LGA.

Confirming the incident to Channels Television via a telephone conversation, the Co-Convener, Concerned Shiroro Youths, Sani Kokki said the attack took place on Wednesday night while the state was still grappling with the shock of the abduction of students, teachers, and others at GSSS Kagara.

According to Mr. Kokki, the gunmen stormed the villages in large numbers heavily armed. He said the attack which lasted for hours claimed at least one life with two persons injured. One person was shot in the eye while the other was shot around the armpit.

Those who sustained injuries have been rushed to Kuta General Hospital and are being treated. Meanwhile, on Wednesday morning, armed men attacked the Government Science College Kagara in Rafi Local Government Area of Niger State shooting sporadically.
