The President also commended the officers and men of the Nigeria Police Force who took prompt action to confront the attackers –minimising the resultant casualties.
He reassured the people of Kano and all Nigerians that the Federal Government would continue to do all within its powers to further enhance the ability of the Police, Armed Forces and other security agencies to prosecute the war against terrorism to a successful conclusion and provide greater security of lives and property across the country.
At least 30 person were killed with many other injured in the attack.
