Peter Obi Comforts Victims in Aftermath of Kano Mosque Attack

The Labour Party’s presidential candidate for the 2023 elections, Peter Obi, made a compassionate visit on Sunday to victims of arson at a mosque in Gadan village, Gezawa Local Government area of Kano state. Obi, showing solidarity with the victims, visited them in their hospital beds at the Murtala Specialist Hospital in Kano and strongly condemned the attack, labelling it a senseless act.

Expressing his dismay, Obi stated, “This is very horrific and remains very condemnable. It’s sad this can happen in our nation today. Nobody can say why this young boy can do a thing like this to his own family members and the society.” His visit aimed to demonstrate solidarity and support for the victims and the hospital management while also emphasizing the need to denounce such violent acts.
