Nidan Nanbadak, a 16 year old girl sustained various degrees of injuries both on her waist and leg after a hunter missed his targeted game at Lijolbilbu, a farming community in the Mion district of the northern region.
The victim together with her siblings and father were on the farm planting yam when a group of hunters from Ichingado also a village under the Yendi Municipal Assembly who were on a hunt for game pursued a rabbit which run in their direction. The hunter who claimed he did not notice their presence on the farm after a calculated attempt to kill the rabbit unfortunately missed his targeted thereby landing the bullets on the unsuspecting victim.
Most inhabitants of the region engage in hunting during the dry season especially when bushes are burnt down and water bodies dry up because most of the animals in those bushes will have no hiding place and water to drink thereby making them less active mostly on sunny days.
Nidan is in a critical condition after sustaining a deep penetrating wound on leg and waist and has since been rushed to the hospital for prompt medical intervention.
