Aliyu Sabi Abdullahi, the senator representing Niger North Senatorial District has said that bandits who were dislodged in Zamfara and Katsina states by the military are finding safe haven in Niger State.




Raising a point of order on the floor of the Senate, Abdullahi said five local government areas in his senatorial district have been under constant attacks by the bandits.




The lawmaker also disclosed that between Monday evening and Tuesday morning, eight people had been killed and several others wounded in attacks on some communities along Tegina-Kontagora road in Niger State.

Abdullahi who appealed to security agents to extend their onslaught against the bandits to Niger State and other states being terrorised by bandits, added that the attacks have forced over 50,000 people to abandon their homes and seeking refuge in the Internally Displaced Persons (IDPs) camps.
