This particular incident does not speak well of the Northern part of the country. It sends a bad signal to the All Progressives Congress (APC).
Members of the public are complaining that the government is not helping them fight insecurity in their state, allowing several attacks to be the call of the day. Note that this is a bad signal for the APC which might lead to residents voting for another party whom they believe might help curb crime in the state. These regular killings in the North may lead to poor turnout during the 2023 general elections.

Recall that it was reported some months ago that gunmen killed at least 30 persons at Kachiwe village, Sarkin Pawa in the Munya Local Government Area of Niger State.
Residents are already losing hope in the APC as they believe that the government's first responsibility is to protect lives and properties. But the reverse is the case and a bad signal to the APC.
