Gunmen on Tuesday allegedly invaded the palace of Emir of Rafi Local Government Area of Niger State.

 

The gunmen, it was gathered, stormed the palace around 6pm.

 

Reports  also noted that the gunmen arrived on about 20 motorcycles, carrying three persons each, and shooting sporadically to scare residents of the area.

 

DAILY POST learnt that a lot of traders in the Kagara market abandoned thier goods and scampered for safety on hearing the sporadic gunshots.

It was also gathered that during the attack, the Emir of Kagara Alh Ahmed Garba Gunna Attahiru II was not in the palace as he had been away from the town for a while.

 

Efforts to get the reaction of the Chairman of Rafi LGA, Alh Ismaila Danmodibo, failed as he could not be reached.

 

When contacted, the state Police Public Relations Officer, PPRO, Wasiu Abiodun, promised to get back to our reporter on the matter.
