Armed bandits on Thursday attacked Gurmana community, Shiroro Local Government Area, Niger State.
According to SaharaReporters, the sporadic shootings were still going on as at the time of filing this report.
It was gathered that the bandits on Thursday laid siege to the community with residents running for safety.
Recall that bandits on Tuesday night launched an attack on Manta village in the same local government area.
It was disclosed that the bandits who were heavily armed with assorted sophisticated weapons came into the village on motorcycles, shooting sporadically.
A source that spoke on the incident said, “Manta village of Manta district in Shiroro Local Government Area was under siege by the armed bandit last night. They shot into the air frequently to instil fear in the victims.”
The source noted that there are many casualties but there is no certainty as to the number of those affected at the moment.
The attack on Gurmana is the fifth reported attack in Niger State in the last one week.
