Man Sets Mosque on Fire During Prayers See Why 

KANO, (iexclusivenews) – A devastating incident occurred in the early hours of Wednesday at Laraba Abasawa in Gezawa Local Government Area of Kano State, as a man named Shafiu Aminu set a mosque on fire during prayers, leaving 28 worshippers injured.

The victims, who sustained serious injuries, were rushed to Murtala Muhammad Specialist Hospital in Kano.

Carnage During Subh Prayers

The arsonist struck while members of the community were observing the ‘Subh’ prayer, leaving the worshippers in a state of panic.

A community member, who wished to remain anonymous, described the horrific scene:

“The man used petrol and lit fire while the people, about 40 of them, were praying. He locked the mosque after the fire.”

It took time for people outside to become aware of the incident and rescue the victims, who were struggling to break out.

History of Family Misunderstanding

According to residents, the incident is related to years of misunderstanding among the family members.

Aminu had previously attacked his two elder brothers and took himself to the police station, claiming that he had killed them.

A resident, Ibrahim Jibrin, recounted:

“I was about going to the mosque when I saw a boy running engulfed by fire, shouting for help. We didn’t know what was happening before then. This is the third time he would attack people here.”

Police Investigation Underway

Aminu willingly submitted himself to the police after the incident, according to residents.

However, efforts to reach the Police command spokesperson in Kano, Abdullahi Haruna Kiyawa, were unsuccessful as he repeatedly rejected calls.
