Worshippers Killed As Unknown Gunmen Invaded Mosque In Niger

The Police Command in Niger said Gunmen allegedly attacked a mosque and killed an unspecified number of people while observing early morning prayers at a Mosque at Mazakuka village in Mashegu Local Government Area of the state.

Unknown Gunmen have allegedly attacked a mosque in Maza-Kuka village in Mashegu local government council of Niger State, killing 18 worshipers.

It was reported that the Commissioner of Police in Niger, Mr. Monday Kuryas, who disclosed this to Newsmen in Minna on Monday, said the hoodlums also abducted seven other worshipers at the mosque.

"The incident occurred on Oct. 25 at about 0530 hours when the gunmen attacked the village," he said.

The commissioner said that the incident was understood to be a reprisal attack resulting from a long-standing communal feud.

” We are battle-ready to confront any form of criminal elements as long as good residents will volunteer credible information on the movement of dubious characters in their midst,” Kuryas said.
