Senator Mohammed Sani Musa, the lawmaker representing Niger East Senatorial district in the red chamber has cried out over the coordinated attacks residents of Shiroro Local Government Area of Niger State have suffered in the last few days.
The Senator behind the controversial social media bill, said the people of Kudodo, Galapai, Dnakpala, Makera and Dnalagwa were killed, raped and abducted by armed men who invaded the villages.
Senator Sani who cried out to President Buhari over the attacks, said villages like Tunga and Adunu were not spared either as the gunmen carried out murderous attacks with no security operative in sight.
His statement read;
My people are under siege, innocent families have been displaced, killed, raped, kidnapped and community members straddled in a state of despair. As the attacks continued more villagers in my constituency are awaiting their fate as no sign of succour comes their way.
“It is confirmed that the bandits are attacking all through the night to this afternoon and most communities are in grave danger. For months now, most local governments in Niger East have been under the menacing grip of bandits with no succour insight.
“We are again calling on Mr President and all the security Chiefs to come to our aid without further delay as the people risk continued attacks from these ungodly killers.”
The National Emergency Management Agency and other relevant authorities were also urged to come to the aid of the people of the affected communities.
