Nigeria: Bandits attack Pandogari community, kill four

By: Our Reporter

Pandogari Community in Rafi Local Government Area of Niger State, north-central Nigeria, was attacked by gunmen suspected to be bandits operating in Niger State.

The attack, according to residents, left four people dead, and several others were said to have been abducted by the attackers.

Mallam Alfa Ibrahim, who spoke to the Newsmen in an interview, said the suspected bandits attacked the community through Hayin Makera, the highway leading to Birnin Gwari local government area of Kaduna state.

He said the bandits, riding on several motorcycles, each carrying two or three people wielding dangerous weapons, invaded the community, shooting sporadically into the air on Sunday evening.

He said in the ensuing milieu, the vigilantes confronted the hoodlums, and as a result of the superior firepower of the bandits, they gunned down three of the vigilante members and also shot one of the sick kidnapped victims who were unable to move at their pace.

“Since 5 p.m., we have had information about the impending attack. The community has four entrance routes, and only one is manned by a military detachment. The terrorists avoided that route and came through one of the routes and were confronted by the vigilantes,” Mallam said.Ibrahim said.

He said the community informed the military personnel stationed there, but they did not respond, adding that the community came under attack around 2 a.m. on the fateful Sunday, which left the commander of the vigilante dead and two of his comrades dead.

The commissioner for humanitarian affairs and disaster management, Ahmed Suleiman Yumu, confirmed the incident and said contacts would be made to assess the humanitarian interventions needed.
