No less than four residents of Niger State tragically lost their lives after drowning while attempting to escape a bandit attack in the Gurmana community of Shiroro Local Government Area.

Residents of the community usually take a canoe to an island in the area to hide from the attack of bandits who have made the local government a haven for carrying out their activities.

The PUNCH reports that the incident occurred on Thursday after the residents who had fled to the island on Wednesday to hide were returning home on Thursday when the boat capsized.

The bandits were said to have killed three persons during the Wednesday night attack, rustled cattle, and abducted scores in Bassa near Gurmana.

When The PUNCH contacted the spokesman of the Niger State Police Command, Wasiu Abiodun, on Thursday, he requested our correspondent to send him an SMS.

After the inquiry was sent to the PRO both on WhatsApp and SMS, he has yet to respond as of filing this report.
