The palace of the Emir of Kagara in Niger state has been invaded by armed gunmen who stormed the Rafi Local Government Council of the state on Tuesday.
According to reports, the gunmen numbering about 60 stormed the palace on motorcycles around 6:00 pm on Tuesday, shooting sporadically and causing residents to scamper for safety.
However, there are reports that the Emir, Ahmed Attahiru (II) has been away for almost two weeks.
The assailants were said to have come through Attahiru Primary School towards Madaka road leading to the bush where they abducted the students of Kagara in 17 February, 2021.
The state police command is yet to confirm the attack.
