Kano — Kano State Governor Rabiu Musa Kwankwaso has donated a three-bedroom flat and N1 million to each of the families of the three staff of the Kano Emirate who lost their lives protecting the Emir of Kano, Alhaji Ado Bayero when gunmen attacked his convoy one week ago.

Kwankwaso also donated N250,000 each to three other staff of the Emir, who suffered gunshots wounds during the attack and also pledged to pay all their medical bills. The governor's Special Adviser on Emirate Council Affairs, Alhaji Tijjani Mailafiya Sanka, who announced the gesture Saturday, said it was made out of Kwankwaso's sympathy and concern for the victims who had demonstrated heroism in protecting Bayero.

The deceased victims were the Bayero's orderly, Ado Bala, 34 (Dan Morin Sarkin Kano), the monarch's driver, Kabiru Shuaibu, 35 (Barde Sarkin Ruwa) and Ahmadu Magayaki (Maji Dadin Dan Rimi), the rider of the emir's horse-driven carriage.

The wounded victims are Garba Zagi, Musa Umar Zagi and Abubakar Zagi who are assistants to Bayero and two of his wounded sons, Alhaji Sanusi Ado (Chiroman Kano) and Alhaji Nasiru Ado (Turakin Kano) who accompanied their father to the United Kingdom for medical check-up after the attack.
