Man Sets Kano Mosque On Fire During Prayers, 24 Worshippers Injured by chiagozien(m): 11:50am On May 15
A Kano resident, Shafiu Aminu, has set a mosque on fire at Laraba Abasawa in Gezawa Local Government Area (LGA) of Kano State.

The incident, which occurred in the early hours of Wednesday, left no fewer than 24 worshippers injured.

Spokesman of the Kano State Police Command, SP Abdullahi Kiyawa, confirmed the incident and also said the suspect has been arrested.

We received the reports of an explosion at a Mosque in Gadan Village, Gezawa LGA, Kano State during “Subhi Prayer” and that some people got injured,” Kiyawa said.

“On receipt of the report, the Commissioner of Police, Kano State Command, CP Mohammed Usaini Gumel, FIPMA, psc immediately deployed the command’s combined teams.

“On arrival, we found 24 persons including 20 male adults and four male children who were removed from the burning mosque with burnt injuries.

“They were rushed to Murtala Mohammed Specialist Hospital Kano where they are currently receiving treatment.”

The police spokesperson said a forensic analysis conducted at the preliminary stage of investigation revealed a suspected petrol explosion.

Kiyawa said the 38-year-old suspect confessed to having carried out the action because of a prolonged family disagreement over the sharing of inheritance.

He said he decided to set the mosque ablaze after citing those family members who are cheating on him in the mosque,” Kiyawa said.

The man is clearly sick mentally, yet they allow him to roam around freely.

This is sad, because it's a preventable accident, if only the police initially upholds justice by locking up the criminal for his previous offense, but as a privileged terrorist, he was released as usual, to perpetrate another serious crime against the society.
