The Yobe North APC senatorial candidate, Hon. Bashir Sheriff Machina has described the brutal killing of a revered Islamic scholar, Sheikh Goni Aisami by unknown persons as not only shocking but a significant loss to the Muslim Ummah in Bade Local Government in particular and Yobe State in general.

Machina said he received the news with great shock added that though death is a garb that will be worn by all at the appointed time, the manner in which the Cleric was killed clearly justifies the believe that the killers were out to perpetrate heinous action that can best be described as man’s inhumanity to man.

“Humanly speaking, one wouldn’t have wanted the revered Sheikh to leave the earth now considering the impact he was making particularly on the lives of young people with his incisive Islamic lectures, however, Almighty Allah is the ultimate decider of ‘when for everybody’ and we have no objection to that”. Machina said.

While praying for the repose of the soul of the deceased, Machina urged security agencies to do everything humanly possible to apprehend the perpetrators of this despicable act.
