The Speaker of the House of Representatives, Tajudeen Abbas, has expressed sadness at the unfortunate incident that happened on Friday when parts of the Zaria Central Mosque collapsed during the Asr prayer, leading to the death of some of his constituents.
In a post, Abba said, “It is disheartening that people who went to worship Allah lost their lives in that manner. I pray that Allah (SWT) will grant them eternal rest and reward them with Jannatul Firdaus. My thoughts and prayers are with their families and those that sustained injuries during the incident.”
He added, “I also sympathize with the Emir of Zazzau, His Royal Highness, Amb. Ahmed Nuhu Bamalli, my constituents – the people of Zaria – and indeed the entire people of Kaduna State as well as the Kaduna State Government over the unfortunate incident.”
