Garam, a border town between Niger State and the Federal Capital Territory (FCT) was again attacked by bandits on Tuesday night.


It was gathered that the Hoodlums killed one person and abducted nine others.


Tuesday’s attack was the fourth in a series of raids carried out by bandits in the community within a month.


Multiple sources disclosed that on Monday afternoon, bandits in their numbers invaded the town on more than 40 motorcycles, asking the residents the road to Jere, a community along Abuja-Kaduna expressway.


An eyewitness said the bandits, who wore military camouflage and brandished AK 47, swords and arrows, spent several minutes in the community.


Several residents took to their heels in fear, according to the sources.


Another eyewitness said she saw people running when the bandits came with their bikes.


“I saw people running when the bandits arrived. I also peeped where I was hiding and I saw some of them using scarves to cover their faces, while some used masks. Some of them wore combat trousers.”


It was further gathered that about an hour after the bandits left, soldiers of 102 Battalion came and later left.
