The communal violence consumed the lives of three persons with scores of residential abodes burnt down.
The Governor had prior to the wake up of the violence imposed a 24hrs curfew on the community to control the mayhem and restore normalcy to the area.
Bala Mohammed said this in his Eid-el-Fitr message to the people of the state.
He said it is uncalled for that despite the sustained efforts of the Bauchi State Government and security agencies to ensure peace, unpatriotic elements are bent on retarding the efforts for dubious personal gains.
“The unfortunate communal crisis that erupted in Gudun Hausawa community of Bauchi State which led to the loss of lives and destruction of property goes to remind us that, despite the sustained effort of the State Government to ensure peace and the security of lives and property, there are still miscreants among us who are hell-bent on causing confusion and disorder.
“Such people do not represent who we are. I would therefore like to reiterate the resolve of the State Government, to deal decisively with the perpetrators of the mayhem, some of whom have been arrested by the security Agencies.
“We must work hard at deepening the values of tolerance, love and peaceful co-existence and never take the relative peace we enjoy in Bauchi State or Allah’s mercies for granted.
“We must work hard at deepening the values of tolerance, love and peaceful co-existence and never take the relative peace we enjoy in Bauchi State or Allah’s mercies for granted,” the governor pleaded.
He called on the Muslim faithful in the state to carry forward the good moral and spiritual lessons learnt in the month of Ramadan for peaceful coexistence.
