Senator representing Niger North Senatorial District, Aliyu Sabi Abdullahi, has lamented that bandits who were dislodged in Zamfara and Katsina states by the military are terrorizing Niger residents.
Raising a point of order on the floor of the Senate, Abdullahi said five local government areas in his senatorial district have been under constant attacks by the bandits.
The lawmaker also disclosed that between Monday evening and Tuesday morning, eight people had been killed and several others wounded in attacks on some communities along Tegina-Kontagora road in Niger State.
