As Niger state rejoices over the return of the abductees of Government Science College in Kagara, bandits once again struck in the district, killing four people and abducting 25 others.
According to PremiumTimes, the attacks were in Madaka, Karaku, Sambuga and Yakila which are all in Kagara district.
No fewer than four persons were on Saturday reportedly killed and scores kidnapped in fresh attacks on the town and adjoining villages in Rafi Local Government Area of the state.
According to Musa Kwabe, a community leader in Kagara, eight persons were kidnapped in Kundu and 11 others in nearby Gunna district.
He said the four people killed were from Karako, a neighbouring village where seven persons are still missing.
Kwabe also told newsmen that the bandits rustled many cows in the affected villages.
On his part, Muhammed Hussein, a chief in Kagara and a former local council chairman, named one of those kidnapped as Ibrahim Ruvo, who is a chief imam at Madaka village.
Hussein begged the state government to deploy more security operatives to the affected communities to prevent further attacks.
The spokesperson of the police in Niger, Abiodun Wasiu, confirmed the incident and promised to announce any update.
MDB earlier today reported the release of 42 persons who were abducted last week, which includes 27 students, three staff and 12 members of their families.
Kagara and its adjoining villages have been under the siege of bandits for more than two years.
However, it was the kidnapping of the schoolboys that brought the ordeals and sorrow of the community to national attention.
