Nigeria: It's Ungodly - FCT Minister

FCT Minister Bala Abdulkadir Mohammed has condemned Saturday's attack on the Emir of Kano, Alhaji Ado Bayero, describing it as an ungodly and barbaric.

He said it was the height of wickedness for anybody to attack the royal father who he described as an epitome of peace, harmony and tolerance in Nigeria.

Speaking yesterday while declaring open the meeting of the FCT Executive Committee, the Minister said it was abominable for any person or group to attack a highly respected royal father and national icon like the Emir of Kano. He prayed Almighty Allah to grant the Emir, his children and aides quick recovery.
