Armed men suspected to be militia members have reportedly murdered a Fulani chief Imam in a bloody attack in Plateau state. The Chief Imam of Bachi Community, Riyom local government area of Plateau state, has been killed by unknown assailants, according to a National Helm report. It was gathered that the cleric identified as Alhaji Abdullahi Bachi, was brutally murdered in his community by armed militia on Wednesday night.
Until his death, the Imam reportedly worked tirelessly to ensure peace is restored in parts of Bachi where he had his early life. He was part of so many Peace committees initiated by INGOs, CBOs, local government, State and National level interventions.
The sad news was shared by a Facebook user who wrote:
He was the Cheif Imam of Bachi Alh. Abdullahi Imam whom I will personally miss for helping me mobilize participants for my programs in Riyom and for standing out tall for PEACE and UNITY. He was a hundred Men in one and I can’t stop crying because I have lost one of my key drivers of Peace processes in Riyom and Plateau at large.
If you think you can stereotype a particular tribe, understand that there are good eggs from every tribe that are working day and night to keep communities safe.
May your Killers never see rest until they face the law.
