Bandits have killed the Chief Imam of Jumu’a mosque, Mallam Liman Adamu, in Sabon Garin Bilbis town, Faskari Local Government Area of Katsina State for reportedly resisting their attempt to kidnap him.

Mallam Liman Adamu was killed on his farm on Monday morning.

An official of the mosque, Lawal Mamman, who announced the death of the Islamic cleric, said the bandits also kidnapped women working for the chief imam in the farm during the attack.

Mamman, according to a report by WithinNigeria said the bandits had ordered the Imam to follow them on one of their motorcycles but he had refused to do so.

Narrating the ordeal, Mamman said, “They started threatening him with gun but he said he would go nowhere even when they said they would kill him. He told them he had a bad leg and could not follow them into the bush. After the argument, one of the bandits said they should just kill him and leave the place. They killed him and left his corpse there but took away the women.”
