The North-West Governors Forum, led by Governors of Katsina Aminu Bello Masari and his Kano counterpart, Dr Abdullahi Umar Ganduje, on Wednesday donated the sum of fifty million naira (N50,000,000) to the 23 families of the victims of last week’s gruesome attack in Sokoto.
The governors presented a cheque to their counterpart, Governor Aminu Waziri Tambuwal, at the Sokoto State Government House.
The governors prayed for the repose of the souls of the deceased.
On November 8, 2021, bandits shot at a bus conveying travellers from Sokoto to Kaduna. They, later on, set the bus on fire, killing all the passengers.
Local reports put the number of the victims as 42 while the Sokoto government says they were 23.
