The Governor of Niger State in North Central Nigeria, Abubakar Sani Bello has condemned the attack and subsequent killing of worshippers at a Mosque in Ba’ari community, Mashegu Local Government Area of the state.
Governor Bello in a statement by Mary Noel Barje, his spokesperson on Friday, decried how some group of individuals for whatever reasons 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, the Governor reaffirmed his commitment and unrelenting efforts to curtail the nefarious activities of armed bandits in some parts of the state.
“It is unfortunate that some people no longer respect the sanctity of life and places of worship such that they kill people while praying.
