Niger State Commissioner of Police, CP, Monday Bala Kuryas has revealed that only 13 persons instead of 37 were killed by bandits at Nakundna and Wurukuchi communities, Shiroro Local Government Area on Monday

The state CP said this in a press statement signed by the state Police Public Relations Officer, PPRO, DSP Wasiu Abiodun in Minna.

He described the news of 37 lives lost as unfounded, baseless, and untrue.

He explained that 13 persons lost their lives in their farms at Nakundna village near Kaure during the attack in the area while harvesting their farm produce.

” The suspected bandits/terrorists attacked some villagers who were harvesting crops in their farm at Nakundna village near Kaure in Shiroro LGA, and unfortunately, thirteen (13) persons lost their lives as a result of the attack”

“However, tactical teams were drafted to the scene led by Area Commander, Shiroro as details of the incident were not immediately available due to the rough terrain and lack of communication network in the area,” the commissioner stated.

While condoling the families of the victims, he reassured residents that the Police and other security agencies will not relent in the ongoing onslaught against banditry and other criminality in the State.
Kuryas equally admonished reporters to avoid rushing to publish stories without adequate verification to avoid causing panic and public outrage.
