Nigeria: One Attack Too Many - Buhari

National leader of the Congress for Progressive Change (CPC), Gen. Muhammadu Buhari, has condemned Saturday's attack on the Emir of Kano, Alhaji Ado Bayero.

He was quoted in a statement by CPC spokesman Rotimi Fashakin as saying that he was horrified by the attack on the convoy of the Emir and sympathised with the families of those killed during the attack.

"Let it be stated that insecurity of lives and property in any clime is a measure of its level of development. This aptly explains why the Nation's constitution, in section 14, places security and welfare of the people on the Government. As citizens, we look forward to the time that this cloud of insecurity shall be lifted," the statement said.
