Governor Bagudu says Soldiers Killed By Bandits Destined To Die, May God Take Their Souls

The Governor of Kebbi State, Mr. Atiku Bagudu says soldiers who were killed in bandits’ attack on their barrack were destined to die that way; he, however, prayed for the repose of their souls.

The governor expressed his sentiment when he visited the 1 battalion Dukku barracks in Birnin Kebbi on Friday to console the family and colleagues of the slain soldiers.

“As Muslims and Christians we all believe in destiny. The recent happenings are destined by God, we pray that God will avert future occurrence,” Mr Bagudu asserted. “We fervently pray for the repose of the souls who died and once again sympathise with their families.”
