Niger State government has ordered the immediate closure of boarding schools in Rafi, Munya, Shiroro and Mariga local governments as a fallout of the abduction of students in Government Science College, Kagara, early Wednesday morning by bandits.
Niger state Governor Abubakar Sanni Bello made the announcement on Wednesday.
Niger State has been the epicenter of bandits in recent times.
On Sunday Bandits attacked the state’s transport service bus and abducted 21 passengers.
Also on Tuesday bandits killed a district head of Kusheriki District and nine other people.
