The protesters said they embarked on the action to call the attention of the relevant authorities to their plight after gunmen invaded the community on Monday around 1:00 am and abducted 15 persons.

Speaking during the protest, a member of the community who identified himself as Hassan Hassan said the gunmen invaded the community around 1:17am and abducted 15 persons.

Hassan said they decided to protest to ask the government to come to their rescue in Niger state.

“At exactly 1:17am in the morning, I heard a gunshot. I had to quickly close my windows because they were opened. I told my people at home to be calm,” he said.

“I went to my toilet to see what was happening. I saw that the gunmen were taking my neighbour with his two children. One is 10 years old and the second is 8 years old.
