Mark condemns attack on emir of Kano

20 January 2013, 16:03

Abuja - Senate President David Mark on Sunday in Abuja condemned Saturday’s attack on the Emir of Kano, Alhaji Ado Bayero.
In a statement issued by his Special Adviser (Media), Mr Kola Ologbondiyan, Mark described the attack as "a violent assault on our respected traditional institution’’.

The Senate president urged security agencies to rise to the challenge by fishing out the perpetrators.
He appealed to well-meaning individuals with information on the hideouts of perpetrators of attacks in the country to make such available to the security agencies.

The Senate President, however, urged those behind the dastardly acts to embrace peace in the interest of the nation.
"If their agitations and actions are genuine, they should embrace the dialogue option canvassed by notable Nigerians,’’ he said.

Mark condoled with families of the emir’s driver and guards who lost their lives in the attack.

"You should take heart and leave vengeance to God.’’

He urged the emir to continue his selfless contributions to building of his immediate domain and the nation in general.
