National Leader of the All Progressives Congress (APC), Bola Tinubu, has donated the sum of N50million to families of victims of the recent killings in two Local Government Areas of Zamfara State.
Tinubu made the donation on Thursday when he paid a visit to the state to Commiserate With Governor Bello Matawalle and the people of the state over the recent killings in Anka and Bukuyyum Local Government Areas.
The former Governor and his entourage were recieved by Zamfara State Governor Bello Matawalle and other top government functionaries after which he went into a closed door meeting with the Governor..
At least, 58 people were reported killed last week when bandits raided some villages in Bukkuyum and Anka Local Government Areas of the state.
Meanwhile, President Muhammadu Buhari earlier in the week sent his condolences and that of his government to the people of Zamfara State on what he described as the “extremely unfortunate” mass killings of innocent people by retreating bandits.
The president, who said the recent incident was a very sad one for the nation, reiterated his earlier commitment to tackle terrorism head-on, giving assurances that the besieged communities and other Nigerians will not be abandoned to their fate.
