Gunmen Kill 3 Worshippers Praying Inside Mosque in Okene Unknown gunmen killed three worshippers in an attack on a mosque in Okene, Kogi State, a day after 19 were killed in gunfire at a church in the same town, police said.

The three worshippers were shot dead by unidentified gunmen while praying inside a mosque.

“There was a fresh attack at a mosque in Okene. Two soldiers died and another person in the crossfire,” Kogi State Police Commissioner Muhammed Katsina told Reuters.

After the attacks, Kogi State Governor Idris Wada ordered an all-night curfew in Okene and surrounding areas in an effort to stem the violence.
