“On getting to the location, the armed bandits set ablaze the place of worship and the two houses,” the commissioner stated.

Receiving the report, Governor El-Rufai commisserated with the community, and condemned the setting ablaze of the place of worship and two houses by armed bandits.

The Governor empathized with the church and assured them that the government under his watch would continue to work hard in the fight against banditry and other crimes.

He charged worshippers to remain strong in their faith and devotion, and see it as an act perpetrated by enemies of peace, humanity and diversity who will not succeed but will be defeated by the grace of God.
