The governor of Zamfara State, Dauda Lawal has vowed prosecute the killers of Sheikh Abubakar Hassan Mada.

The governor made the promise on Friday during a condolence visit to Mada town, the hometown of the late Islamic scholar and Chief Imam of the community.

Sheikh Mada was killed by a suspected group of vigilantes last week in Mada town, Gusau Local Government in Zamfara State.

A statement issued by the spokesman of the State Governor, Sulaiman Bala Idris, revealed that Governor Lawal participated in the Juma’at prayer at the Mada central mosque.

The statement added that the governor offered condolences to the family of the late Islamic scholar, the district head, and the community at large.

“During his address to the Juma’at congregation, the governor promised to do everything within his power to ensure justice for the unfortunate incident,” the statement read.

“I am here to reassure the good people of Mada town that my government is committed to ensuring that justice is served and that the perpetrators of the incident are brought to book.”

“No stone will be left unturned in the pursuit of justice for the murder of Sheikh Abubakar. We will work tirelessly to ensure that the late Sheikh and his family receive the justice they deserve.”

“I was not in Gusau when the incident occurred. However, upon receiving the shocking news, I immediately contacted the heads of all relevant security agencies in the state to take appropriate action.”

“The police have initiated an immediate investigation into the extrajudicial murder. I solemnly swear by Allah that we will ensure that anyone found guilty of this heinous act will be brought to justice.”
