N1m Each For Igbo Traders In Northern State, Photos Emerge, Governor’s Reason For Gesture Revealed
Following the recent explosion in Kano state, Governor Abdullahi Ganduje has gifted N1 million each to Igbo traders that were affected by the explosion.
This was disclosed by Joe Igbokwe, an All Progressives Congress (APC) chieftain who shared photos of how the event took place in the Northern state.
According to Igbokwe, the money (N1 million for each trader) is the Ganduje-led government’s effort to compensate those who were victims of the recent explosion in the state.
He wrote on Facebook;
“Great lessons for my people in the South East.
“News has it that yesterday Governor Ganduje of Kano state gifted Igbo traders who were affected by the bomb explosion that happened last week N1million each.”
Recall that scores were feared dead following an explosion along Court Road in Sabon Gari, Kano State on Tuesday, May 17.
The explosion, which occurred near a private secondary school, Winners School, destroyed a residential building and affected part of the school.
The explosion occurred in the wee hours of the day with many schoolchildren reportedly affected.
The visuals also confirm the blast might have claimed several lives with at least one corpse seen on the floor.
A crowd had gathered right after the blast with some people trying to help the injured and others lamenting the damage.
It was not yet clear if one of the buildings housed a school, but the visuals showed several schoolchildren being moved away from the scene. One of them was injured.
Recall that the police command in Kano state had earlier confirmed the death of four persons, claiming that gas, not a bomb, exploded on Tuesday morning.
