Kano state government has ordered a full-scale investigation into the circumstances that led to the bloody clash between groups of local hunters in Ganduje town, Dawakin Tofa Local Government Area, in which one person lost his life and two others sustained serious injuries.
In a Statement issued by the state Commissioner for Information, Youths and Culture, Malam Muhammad Garba, Kano state government in strongest terms, condemned the clash.
The statement added that already security operatives have been drafted to the area to fish out those behind the dastardly act.
The statement also described, “Attempts by some selfish individuals to link the clash with Governor Abdullahi Umar Ganduje’s visit to the town to attend a wedding Fatiha as not only uncalled for, but a clear mischief and cheap blackmail.”
The statement further noted that, ‘’While it is true that Governor Ganduje was in the town to attend a wedding Fatiha, the clash between the rival hunters erupted after the Governor left the town.”
The statement, however, assured that the state government will not fold its arms and allow disgruntled elements to disturb the prevailing peaceful atmosphere in the state and promised to continue to work towards protection of lives and properties of the people in the state.
It also admonished citizens to develop the spirit of tolerance, patience and obedience to constituted authorities at all times.
