Again bandits strike in Niger, abduct 50

Published

on

Bandits on Thursday abducted about 50 people in an early morning attack on Bassa community in the Shiroro Local Government Area of Niger State.

There have been regular attacks by bandits in the state. At least 22 people were killed by bandits on September 4, 2020 in the state in two attacks, the APF had reported then.

Earlier, the military had confirmed three soldiers of the Operation Whirl Punch had been killed and two others wounded while repelling an attack by bandits on Tashan Kare community in the state.

The bandits in the early hours of Thursday reportedly invaded the Bassa community in large numbers on motorcycles, according to The Nation’s report.

The people, who were said to be getting set for the day’s activities, were jolted by the bandits’ invasion, causing them to run into the bush for safety.

The Co-convener, Concerned Shiroro Youths, Sani Abubakar Kokki, who confirmed the incident, said the bandits attacked the town, causing mayhem on unsuspecting peaceful and defenceless people.

He, however, stated that the number of people kidnapped was yet to be ascertained but noted that they were many.

Kokki also disclosed that on Tuesday, some other communities in Bassa/Kokki were attacked.

He said that Shiroro Local Government Area was urgently in need of help, as people had continued to live in fear.

The state Police Public Relations Officer (PPRO), ASP Abiodun Wasiu, said he would get back to on the incident.

    My developer is trying to persuade me to move to .net from PHP.
    I have always disliked the idea because of the
    costs. But he’s tryiong none the less. I’ve been using WordPress
    on numerous websites for about a year and am worried about switching to another
    platform. I have heard great things about blogengine.net.
    Is there a way I can import all my wordpress posts into it?

    Any kind of help would be really appreciated!

BREAKING: DPO killed as militants attack Uzodinma’s hometown in Imo

Published

on

Gunmen suspected to be militants of the proscribed Indigenous Peoples of Biafra have killed a Divisional Police Officer in Imo State, Fatmann Dooiyor, a Chief Superintendent of Police.
The slain DPO was reportedly killed while trying to repel the attack by the armed IPOB members.
Dooiyor was the DPO for Omuma at the Governor Hope Uzodimma’s community in the Oru East Local Government Area of Imo State.
The armed gang struck on the day IPOB leader, Nnamdi Kanu, was to be arraigned at a Federal High Court in Abuja.
The Department of State Services (DSS) did not produce him in court.
According to a statement signed by the Police Public Relations Officer of Imo, CSP Mike Abattam, six of the gunmen were killed by the police while 11 were arrested.
Abattam said the bandits in convoy of three vehicles invaded the community but were repelled by police led by the Area Commander, ACP Benjamin Abang.
He said that the police were alerted when bandits were sighted moving in convoy into Omuma town.
Abattam said, “The tactical teams of the command immediately swung into action, ambushed and launched a surprised attack on the convoy of the bandits which resulted to the neutralisation of six of the bandits while, 11 of them were arrested to the station.
“Unfortunately, the Divisional Police Officer, CSP Fatmann Dooiyor paid the supreme price.
“The teams later recovered the three vehicles abandoned by the bandits to the station which includes, two Toyota Highlander SUV vehicles with registration numbers Abia MBL 517 AT and LAGOS, JJJ 984 EL respectively and a milk colour unregistered Lexus Jeep to the station.
“Presently, the command’s tactical teams and Special forces led by ACP Evans E.Shem are combing the bush for possible arrest of the bandits that fled into the bush,” the statement added.
Suspected IPOB militants had attacked the community earlier in the year.
They had killed a security guard at the residence of Uzodinma and set the building on fire.
