Tragic aerial strike causes anger, outrage in north

Also speaking, embattled Presidential Candidate of the New Nigeria Peoples Party, Senator Rabi'u Musa Kwankwaso said “This incidence of ‘mistaken’ airstrike, is another gory episode of security agencies leaving unintended harm to the poor masses they should protect in the country.

“The concerned authorities need to approach this with all sincerity and determination to ensuring justice is done, and any future occurrence is avoided."

Nasir Isa, is a security analyst in Kano. He told AllNews.ng that a mistake like this will throw Nigerians in doubt of if government is really serious about protecting them.
