By Mohammed Baba Busu

Gov. Mohammed Umaru-Bago of Niger has condemned the robbery attack on the cashier of the Emir of Minna, Ibrahim Sani at the palace.

Bago said this in a statement issued in Minna on Wednesday by his Chief Press Secretary, Bologi Ibrahim.

He described the incident as unfortunate and the height of disregard for traditional institutions.

The governor said his administration would not fold its hands and allow criminals to inflict pain and sorrow on innocent people.

“This is highly unfortunate to have this kind of situation not just in the state capital but within the Emir’s Palace.

“My administration will not condone this act, as such security agents should do everything possible to arrest those involved in the criminal act,

“I charge the security agencies to investigate and fish out the criminals with the view to prosecuting them”, the governor said.

Bago, who sympathised with the Emir of Minna, Alhaji Umar Farouk-Bahago over the robbery attack, prayed to God to grant quick recovery to the injured. (NAN)
