The Niger state Emergency Management Agency says Armed
bandits numbering about two hundred have overrun Kokoki
village in Shiroro Local Government Area of Niger State,
sacking the people from their homes.
The Director General of the Agency, Ahmed Inga said he
received a report from the area that the gunmen invaded the
community in broad daylight on Monday, shooting sporadically
into the air.
He says they also subjected the people to torturing, beating some
of them to the point that they became unconscious.
The NSEMA boss says the bandits are ransacking each house in
the village, dispossessing the people of their belongings
including food, clothing materials, cellphones, while also
rustling their cattle.
