Kaduna State governor, Malam Nasir El-Rufai, has condemned the recent attack on Gora Gan village in Zangon Kataf, in the Southern part of the state.
He condemned the attack during his visit to the scene of the incident.
Commissioner of Internal Security and Home Affairs, Samuel Aruwan, who visited the area on behalf of the governor described the attack as inhuman and unfortunate.
Recall that, unknown gunmen had last Friday opened fire on the Gora Gan market killing 17 year old Bridget Philip and 19 year old Precilla Madama, while injuring some people.
In his condolence visit to the bereaved families in Gora Gan, the commissioner who said the state government is not happy about the sad incident, appealed for calm.
He expressed government’s commitment to sustain peace and provide security in the area.
The commissioner was accompanied on the visit by security heads in the area and operatives.
The Kaduna State government delegation also visited those that were injured during the attack at the General Hospital, Zonkwa to commiserate with them over the unfortunate incident.
The District head of Gora Gan, Elias Usman Gora, while commending the state government for the prompt measures taken over the incident appealed for more security in his domain.
The monarch appealed for the reopening of the police station: “Our youths should continue to live in peace and support the government in its efforts to bring permanent peace in our area.”
Speaking with journalists after the security and stakeholders meeting held at Operation Safe Haven sector 7 in Kafanchan and Zango Kataf local government secretariat, Aruwan said: “The discussions in our meeting centred on security of the state. We will continue to strategize and bring initiatives. As for the recent incident, we condemn what happened. Investigation is in progress. We are deeply committed to sustain the peace in the state,” Aruwan said.
