Four people have been reportedly killed, fifteen kidnapped while eight sustained varying degrees of injury abducted fifteen as bandits invade Niger state communities.
The bandits rained terror in Fapo village of Lapai Local government area of the state early Monday morning.
NigeriaCrime.com learned that the armed bandits stormed the village in their numbers early in the morning and started shooting sporadically to scare the villagers.
A community leader Danlami Idris who confirmed the incident said the villagers were caught unaware hence the fatality.
“We have never experienced such an attack before. The attack is horrible especially due to the number of deaths and other casualties,” he revealed.
He called on government and security agencies to rise to their responsibilities in securing the lives and property of the Communities pointing out that the terrorists have finally penetrated the local government which he said is now being invaded at will.
Lamenting he said, that just last week Thursday, bandits invaded some villages in the same Lapai local government during which one local Vigilante was killed, another injured and ten villagers abducted with their whereabouts still unknown.
The villages invaded are Ebbo, Angwan Dajin Gomna in Kpada Community and Ilafiyan Zago villages.
Meanwhile, Nigeriacrime.com gathered that bandits who kidnapped over 40 persons in Southern Kaduna, have demanded N200 million as ransom to release the hostages.
According to Awemi Dio Maisamari, the SOKAPU President who decried the ugly development said the mass abductions took place on the 12th and 13th of September, 2022 at Kasuwan Magani in Kajuru LGA of Southern Kaduna.
He lamented that there is still no breathing space for communities in Southern Kaduna, as terrorists, jihadists, bandits and armed herdsmen have continued to plunder and wreck communities in the Southern part of the state.
He said on the first day (12th September), 6 people were abducted in a night raid by the daredevil terrorists at Ungwan Fada part of the town.
With no measures put in place to forestall a recurrence, the following day (13th September), the terrorists stormed the Cherubim and Seraphim Church during a night vigil programme at the Bayan Kasuwa quarters of Kasuwan Magani town at around midnight
