The Sultan of Sokoto, Dr. Muhammad Sa’ad Abubakar III, has demanded justice for the victims of the military airstrikes that killed over 100 people in Tudun Biri village in Igabi local government area of Kaduna state.
The Sultan said this Friday at the Silver Anniversary of the 11th Emir of Jama’a, Alhaji (Dr.) Muhammad Isa Muhammad (CON), on the throne, at the Emir’s Palace in Kafanchan, Kaduna.
“We are here not only to celebrate the emir, but to also pray for the emirate and the lives of those killed in Kaduna state. We are going to push for it until justice is served to the people,” he said.
The Chief of Defence Staff, Gen. Christopher Musa, in his remarks, described the incident as “highly regrettable.”
“Our duty is to protect the citizens; we are going to take a serious action to make sure something like this is not going to happen again anywhere in the country. The president has ordered a thorough investigation on it,” he said.
