Zulum said: “On behalf of the government and people of Borno, I am here to extend our sympathy to you over the killing of our brothers, who had gone to earn a living.


“I urge you to take solace from the Almighty Allah, as He alone can take life. We pray that their souls shall rest in eternal peace.”


The governor, who presented relief materials to each of the bereaved families to support them during the mourning period, also assured them of further assistance.


Responding on behalf of the families, the Shehu of Dikwa appreciated the governor for his concern and commitment to the welfare of the people.
