Terrorists Launch Fresh Attacks On 3 Niger State Local Government Areas

The Nigeria Police, Niger State Command, on Monday confirmed that terrorists launched attacks on Munya, Shiroro, and Paikoro Local Government Areas of the State on Sunday.

DSP Wasiu Abiodun, the Spokesperson of the Niger State Police Command said however that the attack was repelled by the Joint Security Task Force consisting of Police, Army, NSCDC, and DSS.

Stating that scores of the terrorists escaped with gun shot injuries while the team recovered several cattle, Abiodun said on May 15 information was received that suspected terrorists were sighted at Zazagha and injita villages of Munya LGA.

The security tactical teams were immediately drafted to the area and discovered that the terrorists had divided themselves into different groups, as some of them moved to Fuka and Daza villages of Munya LGA.

“The tactical teams advanced to the areas where the hoodlums were fiercely engaged in a gun battle and repelled.

“The hoodlums later extended to Gwalo village, Paikoro LGA and the joint team responded swiftly, with the recovery of cattle from them.

“Reinforcements were sent to Mutun-Daya village, via Gwada, Shiroro LGA upon the receipt of information that another group was sighted in the area.

”The bandits were equally engaged in a gun duel and some of them were neutralized, while others escaped into the forest with gunshot injuries,” Abiodun said.
