Kano State governor Rabiu Musa Kwankwaso donated a three-bedroom flat and N1 million to each family of the three Kano Emirate staff members who lost their lives protecting the Emir of Kano, Alhaji Ado Bayero, when gunmen attacked his convoy one week ago.
Kwankwaso also donated N250,000 each to three other members of the staff who suffered gunshots wounds during the attack. He also pledged to pay all their medical bills.
The governor’s Special Adviser on Emirate Council Affairs, Alhaji Tijjani Mailafiya Sanka, announcing the gesture Saturday, said it was made out of Kwankwaso’s sympathy and concern for the victims, who had demonstrated heroism while protecting Bayero.
The deceased victims were Bayero’s orderly, Ado Bala, 34 (Dan Morin Sarkin Kano), the monarch’s driver, Kabiru Shuaibu, 35 (Barde Sarkin Ruwa) and Ahmadu Magayaki (Maji Dadin Dan Rimi), the rider of the emir’s horse-driven carriage.
The wounded victims are Garba Zagi, Musa Umar Zagi and Abubakar Zagi who are assistants to Bayero and two of his wounded sons, Alhaji Sanusi Ado (Chiroman Kano) and Alhaji Nasiru Ado (Turakin Kano), who accompanied their father to the United Kingdom for medical check-up after the attack.
