The Kano State Government has finally reacted in a statement today by the state Commissioner of Information, Malam Mohammed Garba.
The Government said it was deeply saddened by the news of the rape and it would ensure that whoever is found involved in is sentenced to jail for life. Gov. Ganduje has directed the state Ministry of Justice to prosecute “whoever is involved in this sordid sexual crime.”
The government stated that it would settle the medical bill of the victim and advised parents to monitor the movement of their wards and those they keep company with. Religious leaders have also been urged to use their places of worship to propagate the dangers of such crime and other social vices in the society.
