The Northern States Governors' Forum has made a donation of the sum of N180m to victims of the unfortunate bombing incident mistakenly carried out by the Nigerian Army in Tudun Biri, Igabi LGA of Kaduna State.

Rising from its meeting held at Sir Kashim Ibrahim House, Kaduna, Friday evening December 15, 2023, chairman of the Forum and Governor of Gombe State, Alhaji Muhammadu Inuwa Yahaya, read the communique of the meeting, which contained the donation.
The forum commiserated with the government and people of Kaduna State over what it described as an unfortunate incident, which claimed the lives of many people with properties lost.

It resolved to work collectively to ensure that the tragic incident is thoroughly investigated with a view to compensating victims and taking corrective measures to prevent future occurrence.

The forum commended the federal government for the renewed vigour in the fight against insecurity, menace of kidnapping, banditry, communal clashes and terrorism bedeviling the region.

"The forum resolved to stand united in its commitment to addressing those challenges through enhanced collaboration with security agencies, strengthening local law enforcement, community engagement, adoption of modern technology and administrative reforms, as well as addressing the root causes of insecurity such as poverty, unemployment and deepening social inequality,” the communique reads.

While praying for the repose of the souls of those that lost their lives and speedy recovery of the injured, the forum also prayed God to grant the families of the deceased the fortitude to bear the loss.

It appreciated the Kaduna State and federal governments for the way and manner they handled the unfortunate incident so far.
