The presidential candidate of the ruling All Progressives Congress, APC, Bola Tinubu, on Monday, donated 100 million niara to the families of the vigilantes killed by bandits and all those affected by the attacks in Bakori Local Government Area of Katsina State.
He made the donation at the APC rally held at the Muhammadu Dikko Stadium, Katsina.
Although APC presidential road show and programmes of celebration were canceled over the incident, President Buhari presented Tinubu and the APC governorship candidate in the state, Dikko Umar Radda, to people of Katsina.
Tinubu condoled with Buhari and Governor Bello Masari over the attacks.
“Yesterday, we discussed whether we should continue or cancel the rally. If we had cancelled, they’ll appear to have achieved their aim.
“Nothing happens in life without the will of the Almighty Allah. We’ll continue with our rallies, and ignore the killers. They’ve committed a heinous crime before God and against humanity. No religion or society will tolerate killing of the innocent.
“We share in the pain, and sorrow of loss. Only Allah can soothe the pains of the widows and widowers, and all the loved ones. The killers have not won, and they will never win. The wicked shall perish. We’ll defeat the troublers of Nigeria,’’ he said.
Governor Masari thanked Tinubu for the donation to the families of all those affected by the attacks.
