    By KATO P. LADAN, Kaduna

    The Chairman Northern Speakers Forum, Rt. Honourable Yusuf Zailani commiserates with the government and people of Zamfara, Yobe and Kaduna states over recent attacks that led to deaths of law abiding citizens in their respective states.

    He expressed this in a statement he personally signed and made available to newsmen in Kaduna on Saturday April 24, 2020.

    “News of recent attacks in three states in the North is worrisome and tragic. I am personally touched by the unfortunate incidents, and I am commiserating with the government and people of Zamfara, Yobe as well as Kaduna State over the painful attacks,” he said.

    The Chairman Northern Speakers, who is also the Speaker of Kaduna State House of Assembly said that he is further saddened as death toll from the killings in Zamfara State is said to be rising as reports from communities indicated that at least 90 corpses have so far been buried while many persons remain unaccounted for after the latest round of mayhem.

    He also condemned the attack by armed members of the dreaded Boko Haram sect on Friday on Geidam Local Government Area (LGA) of Yobe State with several gun trucks.

    Similarly, Zailani described the invasion of a private institution in Kaduna, Greenfield University as an attack on education.

    He prayed for the repose of souls of three students killed by the bandits, while praying to God to grant the family fortitude to bear the loss, while praying for the release of those abducted.

    It would be recalled that a deadly attack by bandits took place in Zamfara on Thursday.

    Places affected are Magami Market in Gusau Local Government, Dansadau Market in Maru Local Government, Wanke Market in Gusau Local Government and Dauran Market in Zurmi Local Government.
