Bandits, again, went on the rampage yesterday in Gurmana Community in Shiroro Local Government Area of the state, killing one person with 10 others abducted.

The daring bandits were to have executed the operation on motorcycles as they struck in broad daylight.

They also shot repeatedly to scare villagers who scampered to safety as the Invaders moved from house to house and carted away properties.

Besides the killing and kidnapping of the people, some houses and barns of yams and other foodstuffs belonging to the villagers were also set ablaze.

A top member of the local vigilante simply called Idi Fylo narrowly escaped being killed by the bandits but had his house and other valuables set ablaze

Another prominent member of the community, Maiangwa Sarkin Zamma who was reportedly shot in the right arm was immediately rushed to a nearby clinic for treatment.

It was gathered that the killing of six soldiers and a policeman in Allawa and Bassa last week, the bandits had been emboldened as they wreaked havoc on the communities almost on a daily basis with reckless abandon.

The incessant attacks from the bandits have forced most of the villagers to flee their abode.

Meanwhile, the government has placed restriction on okada, keke in the state.
