Nigeria’s Defence Minister Bashir Magashi has urged citizens to be alert in the wake of rising attacks on villages by armed gangs.

He told journalists that people should not be “cowards” when confronted by gunmen who “at times carry few ammunition”.

The minister’s comments came a day after gunmen killed a school pupil and abducted 27 other children in a night-time raid at a boarding school in north-central Niger state.

Three members of staff and 12 of their relatives were also abducted, according to state governor Abubakar Sani Bello.

On Monday, about 20 people who were returning from a wedding ceremony were abducted after an attack on their bus in Niger state. Their fate is unclear.
