Zabarmari Massacre: Ganduje promises to adopt more orphans, Tinubu describes attack as”Satanic”


Kano State Governor, Umar Ganduje has paid a condolence visit to his Borno counterpart, Babagana Zulum over the recent killing of 43 farmers by Boko Haram terrorists in Koshebe community

Governor Ganduje in his visit also reiterated the Kano government’s commitment to adopting more children, adding that “We are ready to take more of such children because your children are our children and we believe there is no way you can handle this matter effectively especially that it is increasing almost on a daily basis.”

On his part, Governor Zulum thanked Kano State Government for the brotherhood spirit and called for more collaboration among the two states.

Already, the Kano State Government is already in the custody of at least 100 orphans from Borno.

The orphans have been enrolled in schools with the Kano state government responsible for their welfare.

Also, National Leader of the All Progressives Congress, Bola Tinubu, has commiserated with Governor Babagana Zulum and the people of Borno State over Saturday’s killing of over 40 farmers in Zabarmari community, Jere Local Government of the state by Boko Haram.

In a press statement released by Tinubu’s media office yesterday, the former Lagos State Governor described the killing as not only callous but also satanic.

“It is with utmost sorrow and distress that I commiserate with you on the dastardly and inhuman killing of dozens of farmers in Zabarmari, Jere Local Government Area of Borno State, on Saturday 28th November 2020,” Tinubu said.

“The cold-blooded murder of these innocent citizens, toiling to eke out a living for themselves and their families and provide food security for our nation is not only callous but satanic.

“I recall your strident sacrifices to ensure that millions of displaced Borno residents are resettled in their ancestral homes and return to their various occupations. These efforts have not only helped in increasing agricultural output but have also given joy to the displaced.

“My condolences go to the families of the deceased and the entire Borno citizenry. My prayer is that Allah will give comfort them and bring quick recovery to the injured. May he also grant the deceased eternal rest.

“Once again, please accept my heartfelt condolences.”
