Gov Bello Condemns Killing Of Worshippers By Bandits In Niger Mosque


Niger State governor Abubakar Sani Bello has condemned the attack and killing of worshippers at a Mosque in Ba’ari community, Mashegu Local Government Area of the state.

In a statement by his Chief Press Secretary, Mary Noel-Berje on Friday, the governor regretted that 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.

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 reportedly attacked by bandits who killed many and wounded several others.
