President Bola Tinubu’s government is planning to build houses, clinics and schools at Tudun Biri village in Kaduna State to compensate the villagers for the loss of lives they incurred from last Sunday’s deadly strike by the country’s army.
Nigeria’s Vice President Kashim Shettima said that the government also will build veterinary clinics and start-up empowerment initiatives in the community. This, he said, is part of the government’s non-kinetic response to the problems of banditry and kidnapping in the Northwest region.
Shettima, who visited the village on Thursday, said President Tinubu is “deeply concerned” about the tragic incident. He visited the casualties of the bombing error at the hospital and pledged the government’s support.
The Vice President assured that investigation is underway and that the military will submit its report “in the shortest possible time.”
