The governor expressed sadness over the attacks and appealed to the residents to consider it as an act of destiny.

He said government would collaborate with security agencies towards beefing up security across the state.

Mr. Shettima prayed for the repose of the soul of those killed during the attack, assuring that government would shoulder the medical bills of those injured.

Meanwhile, the governor also assessed the reconstruction work going on in Kaga Local Government Area of the state, where he expressed satisfaction with the quality of work done.

The governor also inspected the renovation of Government Secondary School, Auno, and Junior Secondary School, Benesheikh, both in the local government.

The governor charged the contractors to speed up work towards completing the projects on schedule.
