Emir of Kano, Alhaji Ado Bayero, said yesterday that the insecurity situation is not peculiar to Nigeria alone, as it has become a global concern affecting many countries.
Bayero made the statement while receiving Vice President Namadi Sambo who visited to commiserate with him over the attack on his convoy by gunmen on January 19, 2013.
The emir who only just recently returned to the country from a medical trip abroad, said the wind of insecurity will soon be over while also calling for fervent prayers to stem the tide.
The 83-year-old monarch expressed appreciation to all those who have condoled with him over the incident. He particularly thanked President John Mahama of Ghana and his Benin Republic counterpart, President Boni Yayi, who visited him while in the UK.
Earlier, Vice President Namadi Sambo who was in the ancient city amid heavy security presence, said he was in Kano to commiserate with the emir and people of the state over the attack, adding that the Federal Government is doing all it could to tackle the situation.
Meanwhile, Sunday morning, four persons were killed and two others injured in a drive-by shooting by unknown gunmen on a tricycle in a Kano suburb.
