Names of Kano Bomb Blast Victims Released



Kano State Governor, Engr. Rabiu Musa Kwankwaso, yesterday released  the names of some of the victims of last Monday’s suicide bombing  attack on a luxury bus terminal in Kano.  

Apparently to refute that  most of the victims were from South Eastern part of Nigeria.
The  governor was speaking to a visiting federal government representatives who  had come to commiserate with the state government regarding the deadly  Monday suicide bombing of a bus station that killed at least 25 people.


Kwankwaso  had earlier replied Senators Kabiru Gaiya and Uche Chukwumerije, saying  they were “just ranting nonsense” in Abuja, and that they lacked first  hand knowledge of the attacks.

Below is the list he read out to the visitors:
