More terror and heightened fears have spread across the country as there is a massive wave of insecurity that threatens to pull out the country from its roots.
It seems to be incessant now; from robberies and killings to abductions and all sorts of heinous atrocities. No place in the country seems to be safe anymore as virtually all regions have been hit, one state or another.
More terror spreads with kidnappings in Niger State
In the early hours of Thursday, it was gathered that armed bandits rode into Bassa community in Shiroro local government area of Niger State. They stormed the community on motorcycles in large numbers to carry out this attack.
No fewer than 50 persons have been declared abductees.
According to what everyevery.ng could gather, the villagers were going about their regular preparations for the day when the invaders stormed the area, and they all had to scamper for safety.
This was sometime around 5 o’clock in the morning.
Confirming the incident, the Co-convener, Concerned Shiroro Youths, Sani Abubakar Kokki decried the persistent attacks on defenceless people in the council area and the way more terror keeps spreading among them.
He called on the government to intervene urgently and rescue them, as they seem to be at the mercy of the bandits.
