Mr. Peter Obi, the presidential candidate of the Labour Party in the last election has visited victims of the recent mosque attack in Kano.

The former governor of Anambra State arrived in Kano on Sunday and headed directly from Malam Aminu Kano International Airport to Murtala Muhammad Specialist Hospital, where several victims are being treated.

While expressing his dismay, Obi said, “This is a horrific and condemnable act. It’s tragic that such an event can occur in our nation today. It is incomprehensible why a young boy would commit such a heinous act against his own family and community.”

“We stand in solidarity condemning this act. My visit here is to show support and solidarity for the victims and to commend the hospital management for their efforts. This senseless act of violence must be condemned.”

Obi extended his condolences to the government and people of Kano, urging all Nigerians to unite against such senseless violence.

Recall that it was reported some section of the media that a family dispute over inheritance led to the unfortunate event in Larabar-Albasawa, a quiet community on the outskirts of Gezawa, Kano State.

The attacker, Shafiu Abubakar, allegedly set the mosque on fire during the early morning Subh prayer around 5:30 a.m., trapping about 40 worshippers inside after spraying the area with petrol and locking the door.
