A social media user has revealed his encounter with some Bandits marauding the area of Niger State.
The man by the name Sulayman Muhammad said on Twitter that some armed Bandits attacked a mosque in Bangi town, the headquarters of Mariga Local Government Area of Niger State, where they allegedly killed the Imam of the Mosque.
He said the Bandits tried to force the Imam to drink water and break his fast in the process, but the Imam refused and they killed him instantly.
Boko Haram terrorists group and armed bandits have have been terrorising some parts of Niger State, North Central part of Nigeria. The Governor of Niger State, Sani Bello, announced last week that the security operatives in the State have been overwhelmed by the atrocities of the groups.
Meanwhile, this act of killing an Imam by the bandits has caused reactions on social media with people pointing out that these gunmen might not be Muslims as generally believed by Nigerians.
Check out some reactions to this.
