At least two farmers have been killed and an unspecified number of residents kidnapped during attacks by bandits on Karaga and Rumace communities in Bassa Ward, Shiroro Local Government Area of Niger State.

Residents told Daily Trust correspondent on the telephone that the attack started around 9pm on Friday and lasted hours.

One of them, Mustapha Bassa, said, “The bandits in their numbers rode on motorcycles carrying 3 people and fired shots as they moved into the communities. He said motorcycles, houses and food banks were set ablaze during the attack.”

Daily Trust had reported the recent attacks on Allawa, Bassa and Madaka communities in Shiroro and Rafi LGAs of the state, during which foodstuffs, houses, vehicles and a market worth millions of naira were all burnt down.
