Several worshippers have been kidnapped after terrorists invaded a mosque in Zugu community in Gummi Local Government Area of Zamfara State.

Eyewitnesses said the worshippers were abducted during the Jumat service.

Reports say the armed men hid their guns inside their clothes and stormed the mosque when the Imam was about to start delivering sermon.

“When they laid siege, they asked those outside to go into the mosque told worshippers that they had come to negotiate the release of some captives with them.

“No one saw them with guns and many people mistook them for worshippers. Nobody paid attention to them because they hid their guns. However, shortly after they moved inside the mosque, they brought out the rifles and fired some warning shots. They herded the congregants in to bush but some of the worshippers managed to scramble out of the mosque to safety. The muezzin was among those kidnapped but the Imam was able to escape the assault.
