We are hear to sympathize with our brothers and sisters who are victims of attack,” has said.
Adding, when the incident happened, I raised it on the floor of the house and as federal lawmakers from Southern Kaduna we issued a joint press statement condemning the dastard act against our people. But to our dismay, the Kaduna State Governor called us “irresponsible leaders.”
He went further, I’m not bothered by his statement because I did exactly what the Constitution of the federal republic of Nigeria and the good people of Kaura mandated me to do.
He also tasked youths not to take the law into their hands but, advised them not to sleep with their two eyes closed.
The Village Head of Kukum Daji expressed his joy and that of his community over the visit. He also warned the youths to take the advise given to them seriously.
The visit was rounded up with a visit to the grave site where those killed on the day of the attack were buried in mass number.
