Bombing: Kaduna Govt to settle victims' medical bill

29 October 2012, 09:01

Kaduna  -The Kaduna State Government on Sunday pledged to settle the medical bills of all the 145 victims of St. Rita's Catholic Church attack in Kaduna.

The State Deputy Gov. Mukhtar Yero gave the pledge, when he visited some of the victims currently on admission in four hospitals in the city.

Yero condemned the attack and assured that the government was committed to the protection of lives and property of residents.

He called for continuous peaceful coexistence among the residents to ensure the restoration of peace in the state.

The deputy governor said that the state government would continue to support security agencies in the effective discharge of their duties.

He therefore urged the people to contribute to the effort to ensure peace and tranquillity by shunning rumour mongering and all acts capable of creating disharmony.

Yero assured that the government was not contemplating imposing curfew in Kaduna because of the incident.

The deputy governor had commiserated with the Parish Priest of the Church, Rev. Fr. Mathew Goni, who is on admission at Multi-Clinic.

The priest had sustained injuries on his legs, forehead and fingers during the attack.

The deputy governor also visited other victims on admission at 44 Military Hospital, Garkuwa Specialist Hospital and Barau Dikko Hospital in Kaduna.
