The Zamfara State chapter of the All Progressives Congress, APC, has condemned the killing of the Chief Imam of Mada Jumu’at Mosque, Imam Abubakar Hassan Mada.

This was contained in a statement issued by the state party publicity secretary, Mallam Yusuf Idris Gusau.

The Zamfara APC equally demanded the prosecution of those involved in the killing.

The statement said, “We received the news of the sad incident of the extra judicial killing of the innocent Sheikh by suspected vigilante group members as possible perpetrators of the heinous act and demand quick dispensation of justice against them.

“Such acts of lawlessness seem to be taking a different and dangerous dimension with people not formally recognized by law taking the law in their hands by deciding the fate of the people in the state.

“The government must by now be aware that the killing of the Imam has been roundly condemned throughout the state thus making it highly crucial to expedite action in taking full action against the killers.

“We are calling on the government to take all the necessary steps to address the issue of blood letting of innocent citizens especially such as that of the Ulama like Sheikh Hassan Mada’s status whose religious and moral contributions to the development of the state cannot be quantified.

“We are appealing to the security agencies to do their work without fear or favour to reveal the perpetrators of this unholy act and make their findings public in order to serve as deterrent to others.

“As a party we will continue to support governments at all levels in the fight against banditry, kidnappings, terrorism and other criminalities.

“The party wishes to extend its condolences to the Jamaatul Izalatul Biddia waikamatus Sunnah, JIBWIS, Zamfara State Council of Ulama, Gusau Emirate Council, the Late Imam’s immediate family, good people of Mada and the entire Muslim Umma over this great loss.”
