An Islamic religious leader (Imam) has garnered praise from all over the country after reportedly hiding over 200 people including Christians inside a mosque during last weekend’s brutal clash in the state.

According to BBC pidgin, the brave Imama whose identity was hidden swung into action on spotting people fleeing the Birkin Ladi LGA where the killings occurred. He hid them in a mosque in Nghar Yelwa, his village.

“I first took the women to my personal house to hide them there, then, I took the men to the mosque to hide, ” the imam reportedly said. After hiding them, some armed men reportedly approached the imam, asking him to identify the Christians among the people.


He was said to have lied that they were all Muslims. According to the report, he laid on the floor, begging the armed men to leave.

Over 200 people were killed in the attack.

    Why asking the imam to identify Christians if it is herdsmen and farmers clash. If we tell you the killings by herdsmen has islamization undertone, some will come here to call us names.

    God bless this beautiful man. I’m glad his identification wasn’t revealed or it’d have been a death sentence. Hope Christians will be as good gracious when tables are turned. May God continue to bless this wonderful man.
