Gunmen kill 6 polio vaccinators in Kano


Gunmen on Friday morning shot about 6 polio vaccinators in Nassarawa Local Government Area of Kano State.

The vaccinators went for the usual house to house polio vaccination when they were attacked.

Details surrounding their deaths are still sketchy. Attempts by PREMIUM TIMES to reach the police proved abortive as the spokesperson for the Kano State Police Command did not respond to phone calls.

Nigeria, particularly northern states, is one of the few countries still suffering from polio.

    The muslim world, particularly those in Nigeria are majorly the dredge of most societies because of things like this and they prefer it that way. Any attempt to rescue them is met with stiff resistance.

    We should invoke the Amalgamation treaty and go our way.

    These people are not worth anything, they would rather have a large part of their population as disabled, so they will not bother the elites but come down south to beg for alms (they want polio to ravage their poor)

    Sanusi, El-Rufai, Aliyu, Buhari, Lamido, Atiku, Ciroma, Kwakwanso, Sambo etc. you nor know yourselves, if your people prefer handicapped humans to amble bodies.

    Lest i forget Fola Adeola, Aregbesola and Tinubu this is your Islamic shame also!

      You obviously belong to the same group as the ‘unknown gunmen’. Your plan has refused to work so far. Islam is still the fastest growing religion in the world- starting with the U.S.A!

      Kill our people, kill our peace, kill our livelihoods, businesses and policemen, kill our health and kill our healthworkers,kill,kill,kill and say its Islam. The plan has not worked so far and never will.You will never kill Islam.
