In Niger state, bandits abducted a newlywed wife on her way to her wedded house.When the victim’s family members were transporting her from Allawa Community in Shiroro Local Government Area to her marital house in Pandogari town, Rafi Local Government Area, the bandits struck.
The assailants were alleged to have ambushed them on their journey, stealing the bride and other passengers from a vehicle transporting them.
The event occurred on Friday, according to Jibrin Abdullahi Allawa, President of the Lakpma Youth Assembly.
According to a source, the bandits attacked Gyaramiya hamlet, still in Shiroro, stealing several people and rustling a huge number of animals.

This isn’t the first time bandits have targeted brides in their attacks.
Two newlywed wives were kidnapped in Niger State’s Lavun Local Government Area last week.
