15 persons reportedly drowned while fleeing from a terrorist attack in Gurmana community in Shiroro local government area of Niger state.
Kano-based lawyer, Bulama Bukarti in a tweet posted this morning, said the news was reported by BBC Hausa.
”BBC Hausa reports that more than 15 persons drowned in Gurmana of Niger when they fell into a river to escape terrorist attacked on the village market. Escalating attacks in Niger and Nasarawa when the northwest and the northeast are still raging with fire is very disturbing.”
Just last week, armed bandits attacked the Government Science College in Niger state and abducted 27 students.
