Mark: This is a stab on traditional institutions
Senate President David Mark has described the Saturday’s attack on the Emir of Kano, Alhaji Ado Bayero, as a violent assault on the nation’s respected traditional institutions.
Mark, in a statement yesterday by his spokesman, Kola Ologbondiyan, condemned the attack, saying he was saddened by the renewed violence in Kano and some other states.
Mark urged the security agencies in the country to once again rise to the challenge of these gruesome acts by bringing the perpetrators to book.
Mark, who was quoted as lamenting the incessant incidents of gun attacks and the activities of the dreaded Boko Haram sect who always target innocent individuals, also called on any Nigerians having information about the hideouts of the insurgents to make such available to the security agencies.
Calling on those behind the attack to sheath their swords and embrace peace in the interest of the nation, the Senate president said: “If their designs and actions are genuine, they should embrace the dialogue option canvassed by every notable Nigerian.”
Mark commiserated with the families of the driver and guards that were killed in the attack and admonished them to take heart and leave vengeance to God.
He advised the emir not to relent in his selfless contributions to his immediate subjects, Kano State and the nation in general.
