Gunmen burn 80-year-old man alive after meeting an empty community
An 80-year-old man has been burnt alive by terrorists, who invaded Zazzaga community in Munya local government area of Niger State recently.
It was gathered that “the octogenarian, whose name is yet disclosed, was burnt alive when the terrorists razed houses in the community after they met an empty community.”
Due to fear of being killed, residents of the community reportedly fled into the bush, leaving the old man alone in his house where he was burnt.
The terrorists, according to sources, looted shops and houses before they proceeded to Sohon Kabula and Mangoro communities.
Records says they have raided 15 communities across three local government areas of Shiroro, Munya and Paikoro in the last 48 hours.
The terrorists, reported to have been riding on motorcycles and carrying sophisticated weapons, also attacked Kusasu and Chukuba communities in Shiroro local government area, before later moving to Chibani where they Kidnapped over 30 persons and shot a man identified as Umoru when he tried to escape.
The terrorists looted shops and burnt houses in the communities they invaded.
The Commissioner for Local Government and Internal Security, Emmanuel Umar, when contacted said a statement would be issued regarding the latest attacks.
