Two people died in the attack

The incident, according to reports, happened around 2 pm during the Friday prayers.

Hudu Kwasakwasa, a leader in the community, who confirmed the incident to journalists, said the bandits opened fire on the worshipers.

“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.

The victims have been buried at Old Kuyello cemetery,” he said.

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

He added that a few days ago, the same bandits abducted about 9 people at a community called Angwar Kanawa under Kwasakwasa area.

The latest attack occurred barely 24 hours after the daredevil bandits abducted over 287 students in the neighboring Chikun Local Government Area of the state.
