He further called on the public to be vigilant and report any suspicious move to security operatives.

While commending security personnel for their "wonderful'' work in the state and the country at large, the governor stressed that security was a collective responsibility.

"We will continue to give them the necessary assistance; and to those who are on admission in hospital, they will be treated free of charge.”

NAN reports that the governor had visited victims of the blast at the specialist hospital and Federal Teaching Hospital respectively, and gave them an undisclosed amount of money.
