This is another sad day in our State in which innocent people were again the target of blood-thirsty terrorists.
His Excellency Governor Gaidam’s thoughts and prayers are with the families of victims and those who sustained injuries.
The governor has condemned the attack as callous, barbaric and unjustifiable.
He has also called on security agencies in the State to step up surveillance and the people to remain very vigilant about happenings in their areas and report any suspicious persons or movements to the nearest security point or jurisdiction.
The governor has also directed hospital authories at the Sani Abatcha Specialist Hospital, Damaturu where the injured have been taken for medical attention to provide IMMEDIATE and FREE medical attention to victims.
His Excellency the governor has also reminded people about the need not to relent in prayers for Almighty Allah (SWT) to help restore peace and security in our State and our country.
