The Chief Imam of Sabon Garin Bilbis Jumu’a mosque in Katsina State has been reportedly killed by bandits on the grounds that he resisted kidnapping.
It was gathered from Lawal Mamman, a mosque official, that Mallam Adam was killed on Monday while on his farm. He also said some ladies who were helping out on the farm were kidnapped.
“They started threatening him with gun but he said he would go nowhere even when they said they would kill him. He told them he had a bad leg and could not follow them into the bush.
“After the argument, one of the bandits said they should just kill him and leave the place. They killed him and left his corpse there but took away the women ,” Mr Mamman said.
