Two worshippers killed as bandits break into Kaduna mosque

Two worshippers have reportedly been killed by bandits who invaded a mosque at Anguwar Makera under Kwasakwasa Community in Birnin Gwari Local Government Area of Kaduna State, during Friday prayers.

Daily Trust reported that the community’s leader, Hudu Kwasakwasa, said the bandits opened fire on the worshipers. The incident happened around 2 pm on Friday, March 8.

He said;

“The two worshipers killed were among other Muslims attacked at the Juma’at Mosque in Angwar Makera when the bandits opened fire on them and abducted others today (Friday). The victims have been buried at Old Kuyello cemetery.”

Kwasakwasa said the worshippers were in the second raka’at of the salat when they were attacked, which forced the remaining people to run for their lives.

He further revealed that the same bandits abducted about 9 people at a community called Angwar Kanawa under Kwasakwasa area. He appealed for help from authorities concerned, saying the bandits were raiding the communities unchallenged.

This is coming less than 24 hours after bandits abducted over 287 students in the neighboring Chikun Local Government Area of the state.
