Many worshippers were injured during the attack on Sunday evening.
An eyewitness told The Nation the reason for the invasion by the masquerades was not yet known, stating they first hurled stones at the Muslim faithful who warned them not to repeat the same but they continued.
The masquerades then shot indiscriminately, killing one worshipper in the process.
