Zamfara APC Condemns Extra Judicial Murder Of Imam Abubakar Hassan Mada


From Maiharaji Altine

The Zamfara State chapter of the All Progressives Congress APC has unequivocally condemned Wednesday’s gruesome murder of the Chief Imam of Mada Jumu’at Mosque, Imam Abubakar Hassan Mada without any cause.

This was contained in a statement by the State APC Publicity Secretary, Alhaji Yusuf Idris and made available to Analyzer news on Friday.

The APC expressed disgust over the killing of the Islamic cleric, late Liman Abubakar Hassan Mada by the suspected vigilante group and demanded for quick dispensation of justice against them.

Idris said “We received the sad incident of the extra judiciary 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 lives of 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”.

The APC appealed 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 deterant to others.

The APC as a party according to Idris would continue to support governments at all levels in the fight against banditry, kidnappings, terrorism, and other criminalities.

The party finally extended 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.

“May the soul of the departed Imam rest in Jannatul Firdausi aamiin”. Concluded Idris.
