Kaduna Bombing: FG Vows To Punish Culprits, ACF Demands GOC’s Removal

The Arewa Consultative Forum, a pan-northern socio-political organization, has called for the removal of Major-General V.U. Okoro, the General Officer Commanding One Division of the Nigerian Army in Kaduna.

This demand follows the accidental bombing of Tudun Biri in the Igabi Local Government Area of Kaduna State on Sunday night.

The ACF’s request coincided with the Federal Government’s commitment to punishing those responsible for the inadvertent airstrike.

The intended operation was aimed at eliminating terrorists but tragically resulted in civilian casualties during a religious celebration in Tudun Biri.

Vice President Kashim Shettima, representing President Bola Tinubu, visited the victims at Barau Dikko Teaching Hospital in Kaduna on Thursday. During the visit, he assured the affected individuals that the government is determined to thoroughly investigate and address the circumstances surrounding the incident.

He stated, “All measures will be taken to ensure that future occurrences are averted. The government will go to the root of the issue and anyone found culpable will be punished accordingly.”

Shettima disclosed that victims of the bombing would be taken care of under the Fulako Initiative of the President, which he described as a non-kinetic solution to the challenges in the North-West.

According to him, beneficiary states of the initiative include Sokoto, Zamfara, Kebbi, Katsina, and Kaduna. He added that for the purpose of equity and justice, Niger and Benue states were included.
