Gunmen suspected to be bandit terrorists have reportedly attacked the palace of Alhaji Ahmadu Attahiru, the Emir of Kagara in Rafi Local Government Area of Niger State.
It was however gathered that Emir Attahiru was not at the palace when the gunmen attacked.
He was said to have left Kagara for a programme in Minna on Monday before the attack that took place around Maghrib prayers.
“I cannot give you the details now. The people who called this evening are no longer reachable again. The network in Kagara has been disconnected since Friday,” a source told Daily Trust.
“I believe even those who called went to bush to access network But it is true that the palace of Emir of Kagara was attacked.”
Attahiru was crowned Emir after the death of Alhaji Salihu Tanko, his predecessor.
Tanko died in Minna after a protracted illness in March.
