Unidentified bandits have raped women and girls in five communities in the Shiroro Local Government Area of Niger State.

They carried out the act on Monday, November 22, 2021, as the community members watched on in disbelief.

According to sources, the bandits were only on the mission to rape the women, as there were no reasons for their actions.

“They came and asked me about my husband and I told them that he has gone to the farm, and the next thing, two of them just dragged me inside and asked me to remove my cloth. I started begging them and one of them hit me with a gun and I fell down and he began to rape me, his second also did the same thing,” one of the affected women disclosed to the media.

She also revealed that in some instances, mothers and daughters who were between the ages of 25 to 30, were being raped at the same time by the bandits.

About 30 women and girls were raped, with two to three bandits raping one woman from one community to another.
