No fewer than 2,000 persons have been displaced by the activities of cattle rustlers in Niger State within the past three weeks, an emergency official said on Sunday.
Alhaji Ibrahim Inga, Director General, Niger State Emergency Management Agency, made the disclosure while distributing relief materials to some of the displaced persons in Pandogari.
He said the displaced persons were also sheltering in neighbouring communities in Shiroro and Rafi Local government areas.
The director general said victims were displaced following continuous attacks by rustlers from nieghbouring states of Zamfara, Kebbi, Kaduna and Sokoto.
Inga said already, a Joint Task Force and the police were in Kukoki and Gbada to ensure security to lives and property and urged residents to return to home.
