The Federal Government has vowed to punish whoever was found culpable in the bombing of Tudun Biri in the Igabi Local Government Area of Kaduna State on Sunday night which killed over 120 people.
The Vice President, Kashim Shettima, speaking on behalf of President Bola Tinubu, during a visit to the victims of the bombing at Barau Dikko Teaching Hospital Kaduna on Thursday, promised that the government would get to the root of the incident.
He said, “All measures will be taken to ensure that future occurrences are averted. The government will go to the root of the issue and anyone found culpable will be punished accordingly.”
Shettima revealed that victims of the bombing would be taken care of under President Tinubu’s Fulako initiative.
He added that the Tudun Biri community would be the first community to be rebuilt under the initiative.
President Bola Tinubu sent us to commiserate with the people of Kaduna over the tragic incident. The calibre of people that are here with me is a testimony of how deeply touched the President is by the incident.
“The President was deeply touched by what happened. We would like to assure the people and the government of Kaduna State that the Federal Government will take measures to protect and preserve the interest of our nation.
“The victims will be well taken care of under the Fulako Initiative and this community will be the first to be rebuilt in the North-West zone.
The President directed that the Pullako Initiative be kick-started here in Kaduna State. Tudun Biri will be the first beneficiary of that scheme. We are going to build houses that will complement the efforts of the Right Honorable Speaker.”
