Taking to his handle on X (formerly known as Twitter), the governor said: “On arrival in Kano this night, I paid a visit to the Murtala Muhammad Specialist Hospital to sympathize with victims of the recent arson attack in Larabar Abasawa community of Gezawa Local Government Area.

“During the visit, I vowed that the perpetrator, who is already in police detention, will face the full wrath of the law. I also wish to reiterate that the arson incident is not linked to terrorism or political violence. We shall continue to support the families of all those affected by this unfortunate incident.”

During the hospital visit, Governor Yusuf condemned this brutal act, stating that the state government would ensure justice is served.
