The Governor of the State of Niger, Sani Bello

Governor Abubakar Bello of Niger condemned the recent bandit attack on some Maitumbi and Kuchi communities in the Bosso and Munya local government areas in the state.

Bello, in a statement from her chief press secretary, Mrs. Mary Noel-Berje, in Minna on Monday condemned the incessant activities of the gunmen and urged people to support the government’s efforts to identify and evict the criminals.

The Nigerian News Agency (NAN) reports that some 20 people were allegedly abducted by the bandits, in total more than 50, when they attacked communities in the two areas, leaving dozens injured in the process.

He called on state residents to cooperate with law enforcement agencies by providing the necessary intelligence that would lead to the arrest of the perpetrators of such a heinous act.

Bello revealed that the recent meeting of the Governors of the North Central State in Makurdi, contributed ideas and offered new approaches to address the issue of banditry in the region.

He added that both the states and the federal government were doing everything possible to restore order to the affected states.

The governor assured the governments’ logistical support to the security agencies and recommended that they prepare to assume their responsibilities through collaborative intelligence sharing.

He expressed his sorrow for the families of those who lost their lives in the recent attacks and ordered the State Emergency Management Agency (NSEMA) to treat the wounded and those taking shelter at Maitumbi Elementary School. (YAYA)
