The chairman, Northern Governors Forum, Babangida Aliyu, has called on the federal government to properly investigate the recent attack on the district head of Madobi, Musa Kwankwaso, father of Kano State governor, Rabiu.
The district head was attacked while performing prayers in the mosque at Kwankwaso Town. Though he escaped unhurt from the attack, three mosque worshippers were killed.
Mr. Aliyu, who is the governor of Niger State, stated the governors’ demand when he led a delegation from the Forum on a visit to the Kano State governor.
He said the federal government must conduct a proper investigation in order to know those behind the attack and bring them to book.
The chairman of the forum added that it was high time people assisted government in protecting life and property as security was not solely government’s business. He said the public must assist by providing vital information.
The delegation comprised the governor of Jigawa, Sule Lamido; Aliyu Wamakko of Sokoto; and the deputy governor of Katsina State, Abdullahi Faskari.
The Kano State Governor thanked the forum for their concern, adding that it was high time to work together to ensure that situations like that which happened in hometown was checked.
