Nigeria: Tambuwal Describes Attack Inhuman

The Speaker of the House of Representatives, Hon Aminu Waziri Tambuwal has condemned the attack on the Emir of Kano describing it as callous and inhumane.

He said from all indication, it was meant to shatter the resolve of peace-loving persons in the federation.

In a statement signed by his Special Adviser on Media and Public Affairs, Malam Imam Imam, Tambuwal said the Emir, one of the most respected traditional rulers in the country, is a man of peace whose words and actions have promoted peaceful coexistence among people of diverse backgrounds in Kano State and beyond.

He said the attack, coming at a time when security agencies had made considerable gains in their fight against terrorists, especially in the Northern part of the country, should be fully investigated and all those involved in the act should be brought to justice.

While condoling with the families of those who lost their lives in the incident, Tambuwal urged all Nigerians to embrace peace and allow peace to reign where ever they may be.

He reiterated the commitment of the House of Representatives to work with other arms of government and all interest groups and persons to find lasting peace in the country.
