Scores Of Worshippers Kidnapped As Bandits Invade Zamfara Mosque

Bandits on Tuesday attacked a mosque in Gusau, capital of Zamfara State, and kidnapped scores of worshippers.

It was learnt that the attack was carried out when Muslim faithful were observing the famous congregational prayer, Tahajjud.

Recall that Tahajjud is a special prayer being observed by Muslims every last 10 days of the holy month of Ramadan.

The exact number of those kidnapped remains unclear, with estimates ranging from over 30 to “scores” of worshippers.

This brazen attack on a place of worship has heightened fears in the region, which has been grappling with ongoing bandit violence. Authorities are yet to comment on the incident or confirm the number of kidnapped individuals.
