Governor Abubakar Sani Bello has reacted to the gruesome killing of worshippers by bandits at a Mosque in Ba’ari community, Mashegu Local Government Area of Niger state.
He decried how some groups of individuals have no regard for places of worship as they now attack and kill unsuspecting victims while praying.
Condoling with the family members of those that were killed, Governor Bello reaffirmed his commitment and unrelenting efforts to curtail the nefarious activities of bandits in some parts of the state.
This was disclosed in a statement issued by the Chief Press Secretary to the Governor, Mary Noel-Berje and made available to newsmen on Friday.
Governor Bello was quoted as saying, “It is unfortunate that some people no longer respect the sanctity of life and places of worship such that they kill people while praying.
“My heart goes out to the family members of the victims for Allah to grant their souls Aljannah Firdausi and give quick recovery to those that were injured.”
The worshippers were reported to have been attacked by bandits who killed many while some sustained injuries.
