Abuja - Kano State has assured it would pay the hospital bills of victims of the recent suicide bombing attack.

Governor Rabi’u Musa Kwankwaso gave the assurance during his visit to Mutala Muhammad Specialist Hospital to pay sympathy to injured victims of the attack.

He expressed condolence to the families of those who lost their lives as a result of the blast and called on citizens in the state to support security agencies by stepping up surveillance of their business premises, to avoid attack by insurgents.
