Bandits kill 5 worshippers, abduct Imam, 40 others during Juma’at prayer in Zamfara

Armed bandits on Friday stormed a Juma’at mosque in Dutsin Gari village in Kanoma, Zamfara State, abducting the Imam and about 40 congregants.

The village, famous for sugarcane production, has been a target of the kidnappers.

Credible sources in the village told DAILY NIGERIAN that the attackers, who came astride over 100 motorcycles, killed 5 worshipers and injured several others.

DAILY NIGERIAN learnt that their sporadic gunshots created stampede midway into the prayer, causing the Imam to cut short the session at first Rakaa.

The Imam, simply identified as Mallam Yahaya, was then taken on a motorcycle into the bush alongside at least 40 other worshippers.

A source in the village, Sani Kanoma, told DAILY NIGERIAN that the Imam and some other worshippers were later released on Saturday.

Mr Kanoma said the targets of the kidnappers are the rich sugarcane farmers, who pay millions of naira in ransom.

When contacted, the spokesman for Zamfara State Police Command, Mohammed Shehu, said he would give detail of the incident on Sunday.

Don't mind stupid Lai Mohammed.

He has told the press to christenize them to "bandits".

The Nigeria govt will not freeze the accounts of these idiots or go after them.

They would rather pursue Dj Switch and CNN.

Re: Bandits Kill 5 Worshippers In Zamfara, Kidnap Imam, 40 Others During Prayer by Racoon(m): 8:46pm On Nov 22
Earlier this month, the Northern Governors’ Forum hosted northern political and traditional leaders including the Senate President, ministers and the chairmen of Northern State Traditional Rulers led by the Sultan of Sokoto.

They dedicated more than half of their 20-paragraph communique to condemning the #EndSARS protests, praising the government for its use of live bullets against unarmed protesters and calling for censoring the social media

This speaks volumes on their priorities: they are more perturbed by well-founded protests against police brutality and Nigerians’ freedom of expression than the wanton destruction of the lives and livelihoods of their supposed constituents.That is because the former threatens their power and wealth while the latter affects ordinary northerners whose lives are worth nothing in their eyes.

But the facts and data don’t lie.They show that the bandits continue to get more lethal and sophisticated by the day.They have raised and continue to launder huge sums from ransoms which they use to stockpile weapons and supplies; they have effectively taken control of swathes of land in the northwest where they levy taxes and impose their law(lessness).

Our political leaders are more concerned with their personal parochial interests; our emirs, imams, and intellectuals are silent; most of our youths are uneducated and many of those educated have been brainwashed, blackmailed or bullied into acquiescence. In this perfect conspiracy of silence, who will rescue the north from its dangerous descend?

"You see, these bandits have already been degraded. So, there is no way they can resuscitate themselves and take over. I think they have already been degraded, what they are doing is just hit and run kind of tactics.

So, we don’t see any sign of them coming to takeover or overpower, I think they have been well degraded and they are just trying to show their presence in a very cowardice manner "

Hope the story is not from those people that have multiple accounts here because they will soon come back to say the story is fake news with their other account so I won't say anything about the story for now.
