Some terrorists, on Tuesday, invaded a mosque at the Sabon Layi, in Birnin-Gwari Local Government Area of Kaduna State, killing the Imam.
Three worshippers — Kabir, Bilya Mairabo and Ashiru Mairabo — also sustained various degrees of injuries during the attack.
The worshippers were said to be receiving medical attention at the Jibrin Maigwari General Hospital, Birnin-Gwari.
A community leader, Zubair AbduRrauf, said the incident occurred during the early morning prayers around 5am.
“Yes, an Imam of a mosque and two other worshippers were killed. It occurred around 5 am on Tuesday. Two other worshippers are at the Jibrin Maigwari General Hospital, Birnin-Gwari,” he said, according to Punch.
“The attack took place at Ga Allah Babba of Sabon Layi, an agrarian community in the Western part of Birnin-Gwari. These are areas neighbouring the Kamuku National Park and the Kuyebana Forest in Zamfara and Niger states.
“We are in a precarious situation in Birnin-Gwari. Even on the Kaduna – Birnin-Gwari highway, people are being escorted by either security personnel or the vigilante. Two days ago, the bandits killed two people coming back from Kaduna.
“The bandits’ attack is on a daily basis. Security personnel are really trying their best to see that the attacks are being curtailed but we need a change of strategy from them (security personnel).”
