Barely 24 hours after the abduction of students, teachers, and others from Government Science College, Kagara, unknown gunmen suspected to be bandits have attacked some communities in Shiroro Local Government Area of Niger State abducting no fewer than 10 persons.

WITHIN NIGERIA learnt that at least 10 persons have been abducted in Sarkin Zama, Lagbe (Bakin Kogi), Siyiko, Kokki and other adjoining villages, all in Gurmana ward of Shiroro LGA.

One person has been feared killed, residents say.

Co-convener, Concerned Shiroro Youths, Sani Kokki told newsmen that the attack took place on Wednesday night while the state was still grappling with the shock of the abduction of students.

He said the attack lasted hours and that the injured have been rushed to Kuta General Hospital for treatment.
