The president of the group, which is also known as Tarayyar Masihiyawan Nijeria, General Ishaku Dikko (Rtd.), explained that after the incidence, the Nigerian Police, Emir of Kano and Kano State Government had all reached out to the group and the scene of the crime inspected by the police on April 5. He also stated that six youth were arrested in connection with the arson.

Dikko also stated that nine others, who were arrested, are presently cooling their feet at the Criminal Investigation Department (CID) branch in the state.

“One of our own, Barrister Inusa Bako, is representing our interest and monitoring the prosecution which is now in the hands of the Kano State Commissioner of Police.

“He also charged everyone present to work with the district head and the local government chairman to ensure that the burnt church and the parsonage are rebuilt”, Dikko said.
