A bride in Niger State recently removed her wedding gown and ran kilometers in the bush to escape abduction by bandits who attacked them while she was being taken to her matrimonial home.
City & Crime gathered that the bride was being taken from a village in Paikoro LGA to Kuta, headquarters of Shiroro LGA, when bandits attacked their convoy around Kaffin-Koro in Paikoro LGA.
We were escorting the bride to Kuta from my village, said a sister of the bride who asked that her name not be used in City & Crime. We were attacked by bandits when we drew near Kaffin-Koro.
Daily trust report that, In one of the cars behind me, my sister was wearing her wedding dress. She took it off right away. We were being pursued by the bandits in the forest. After being taken hostage, two of the bride’s companions managed to flee. There was no way to reschedule the wedding. The nuptials were delayed.
The bride and groom both declined to comment on the incident, but close friends said they were both horrified.
