20 Niger residents drowns
ABOUT 20 Niger residents are alleged to have drowned in Niger State’s Guni-Zumba River while fleeing bandit raids.
On Wednesday morning, the victims, who included women and children from Guni in Munyan Local Government Area, were claimed to have died.
According to Shehu Abubakar, a resident of the community, the incident occurred when robbers attacked both communities at the same time, forcing the inhabitants to leave.
The victims were reportedly on their way to the other side of the river in a boat when it capsized.
According to Abubakar, the boat was overloaded, causing it to capsize.
“Bandits invaded our communities this morning (Wednesday), and some people drowned in the Guni-Zumba River in an attempt to flee,” he claimed.
“The boat capsized in the middle of the water due to overloading.”
We don’t know how many people have died yet because we haven’t been able to save anyone.
“However, I can tell you that over 20 people were involved, including women and children.”
Abubakar Hussaini, the Niger State Emergency Management Agency’s Public Relations Officer, did not return calls or a message left for him.
