Before now, it has been reported in news severally that the people who are residing in Niger State, are at the mercy of bandits and kidnappers, as several people have been abducted, killed and some others maimed by the criminals.
However, during this time of election, the unrest in the state has increased, as thugs, who are being used by some politicians in the state, are disturbing the peace of the urban region of the state, as most attacks have taken place during political rallies.
However, while Senator Shehu Sani, who once represented the Kaduna Central Senatorial District, was reacting to this on his official Twitter handle this evening, he said that the people of the state are living with two types of evils.
He said, "The people of Niger State live with two evils, in the rural areas, bandits and terrorists are kidnapping and killing people on a daily basis and in the capital city Minna,urban rival armed thugs backed by politicians are audaciously unleashing evil with impunity."
