Gov. Rabi'u Kwankwaso of Kano State on Monday said an  attack on Sabon Gari is an attack on Nigeria .

The Governor  spoke against the backdrop of the ethnic groups that reside in  the area that was attacked Sunday.

Four persons were confirmed killed in the attack, including the suicide-bomber.

“Attack on Sabon Gari is an attack on Nigeria. Sabon Gari accommodates different ethnic groups from many parts of the country,” he said on a sympathy visit to the people of the area.

Kwankwaso  who described the incident as an act of criminality meant to kill innocent people without a just course,  said the state government would continue to work with security agencies to bring an end to the attacks.

While he promised  that the state government would take care of the medical bills of the injured persons currently on admission at hospitals in Kano, Kwankwaso  called on the people of the state to cooperate with security agencies to check the excesses of criminals in the society.

He condoled with the families of the deceased and prayed for the quick recovery of those injured.
