Gunmen kill PDP Leader, Seven others in Niger

*** slain party leader's daughters also abducted

 

A People’s Democratic Party (PDP) Ward Leader in Kampala Village, Bosso Local Government Area of Niger State, identified as Ahmodu Mohammed, has been murdered in cold blood by gunmen suspected to be armed bandits who also abducted his three daughters
Also allegedly killed were some seven persons in Kusasu in the Shiroro Local Government Area of the state, just as scores of houses of those who were said to have escaped the attacks were burnt down by the fleeing bandits .
It was gathered that the victims who were  killed in Kusasu included four men and two women.
It was further learnt that the victims were said to have fled the attack and hid in the bush but were pursued by the bandits and allegedly shot at close range.
Insider sources in one of the communities said that that a man said to be the driver to the bandits was allegedly nabbed by men of the Nigeria Security and Civil Defence Corps (NSCDC) in Shiroro.
But in Kampala, the killing of the PDP ward leader, last Thursday, came after three attempts on his life by the bandits who had terrorised some other villages before coming to Kampala.
A family member of the deceased said that Mohammed was killed after several hours  of intense battle gun duels with the bandits.
“This was the third time the bandits had attacked him. They didn’t succeed in the first two attempts against the backdrops that  the deceased politician was very powerful,” said the source.
However, condemnations have continued to trail the continued onslaught by bandits across the state, especially on Christmas Eve and Christmas Day.
