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


The Governor condemned the incident in a press statement signed by his Chief Press Secretary, Mrs Mary Noel-Berje, in Minna, the state capital.


He decried how some groups of individuals have no regard for places of worship as they now attack and kill their unsuspecting victims while praying.


While condoling with the family members of those that were killed, he reaffirmed his commitment and unrelenting efforts to curtail the nefarious activities of armed bandits in some parts of the state.


According to the statement, “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 a quick recovery to those that were injured”.


It would be recalled that gunmen stormed the mosque in Ba’ari village of the council, killing 16 persons and many sustained injuries, while they were praying on Wednesday.
