Six persons have been reportedly killed as armed bandits raided two local government areas in Niger State.

The incident, according to information gathered by our correspondent, occurred between 10am and about 12 noon on Wednesday.

The attack affected the Shiroro local government area, where five people were reportedly killed and five others injured, while in Madaka in Rafi local government area, the bandits killed one person with many others injured.

Daily Trust gathered that about 50 heavily armed men, who rode on motorcycle, carried out the attack.

According to a source close to Manta community, the bandits on arrival surrounded the town before unleashing terror.

Over 600 people, mostly women, have been displaced from Manta community and are currently taking refuge at Bosso primary schools in Minna, the state capital.

Local vigilantes were said to have tried to dislodge the rampaging bandits but abandoned the chase when they observed that a helicopter was hovering in the area.

“We beat a retreat when we saw the helicopter because we were afraid that they may mistake us for the bandits and bomb us,” one of the vigilantes said.

It was learnt that the attack was simultaneously done, leaving the security agents helpless.

It was the second of such attacks within four days. The first was on Easter Sunday when the bandits attacked Maikujeri, leaving three dead, a young girl raped and a pastor injured.

13 people were also Kidnapped in the attack.
