JUST IN: Bandits Storm Palace, Kidnap Plateau Monarch

Bandits terrorists have attacked a camp of the Joint Security Task Force located in the Shiroro local government area of Niger State.

Naija News gathered that the camp which is situated in Allawa Secondary School was invaded by the terrorists on Thursday night.

It was also gathered that the terrorists stormed the town with sophisticated weapons, ransacked the armoury and took away the military patrol van during the attack.

Confirming the incident was the Co-Convener, Concerned Shiroro Youths, Sani Abubakar Kokki, while affirming that there was no death.

Kokki lamented that people are being massacred senselessly, raising concern on the renewed ceaseless attacks by the terrorists.

We are now hopeless and helpless, our survival has since been placed on life support. Our vulnerability has reached the highest boiling point to the extent of now living at the mercy of dreaded criminals.

“This current reality is unfortunate, disheartening, saddening and frightening,” he said.

Meanwhile, the Chairman of the Christian Association of Nigeria (CAN) in Kaduna State, Rev John Hayab, has revealed that the only Bethel Baptist students left in captivity refused to be rescued from bandit terrorists.

Recall that 121 pupils were kidnapped by bandits on July 5, 2021, at the school premises along the Kaduna-Kachia highway, Damishi, in the Chikun Local Government Area of the state.

The bandits had released 120 of the pupils in batches, with only one left, Naija News reports.

Hayab, who’s also the Vice Chairman of CAN in the northern states and Abuja, also disclosed that the remaining pupil, said to be the youngest of the abductees, rejected an offer of freedom from the terrorists.

Speaking to Saturday PUNCH, Hayab disclosed that the teenager, who is the youngest of all those abducted, preferred to remain with the bandits, a development that puzzled the entire members of the Baptist family.

According to the CAN chairman, the little boy has been reportedly showered with gifts each time the bandits went out and came back.
