Banditry: Our Farmers Cannot Harvest Crops – Niger Governor

Niger State Governor Alhaji  Abubakar Sani Bello has raised the alarm over activities of bandits who are preventing farmers  from harvesting their crops, saying it would further worsen food insecurity, even as he called for a full war against bandits.

The governor’s concern came on the heels of the recent killing of 13 farmers at their farm in Nakudna and Wurukuchi communities during harvest.

Governor Bello who condemned the attacks in the state said the bandits were fleeing to the state from  the ongoing onslaught by security agencies  in the neighbouring states and were getting disparate to target innocent farmers.
