VP Osinbajo recently met Imam Abubakar who Saved 200 people, who are mostly Christians, during a deadly attack by suspected bandits last year by hidding them in a mosque.

Abubakar, the Chief Imam of a mosque in Yelwan Gindi Akwati village, Gashish District, Barkin Ladi Local Government Area of Plateau State, saved the lives of over 200 persons when suspected bandits attacked communities in the LGA.

The reported attack took place on Saturday June 23, 2018, on Yelwan Gindi Akwati, Swei and Nghar villages in Barkin Ladi Local Government Area, where scores of persons were killed by suspected bandits.

Abubakar reportedly hid over 200 persons, who had fled from nearby communities, inside the mosque and in his personal house, until the attackers left. Many of those the Muslim Cleric provided shelter for were from the Berom ethnic group which are predominantly Christians.
