The Governor of Borno State, Prof. Babagana Zulum, led a delegation on Wednesday to pay a courtesy call on the family of the deceased Bridge-General. Dzarma Zirkushu in Kaduna.
Zulum was reunited with his family at the Ribadu Canton in Kaduna, where he ordered the immediate release of N20m in support of the slain general’s family.
The regime’s spokesman, Malam Isa Gussa, confirmed in a statement that support was being provided to the families of the fallen soldiers along with General Zirkushu.
Zulu was received at the airport by Kaduna State Commissioner for Homeland Security and Internal Affairs Samuel Aruwa and Brigadier General T. O’Neill at the airport.
The governor visited General Zirkushun’s family with three Borno senators, Kashim Shetima, Mohammed Ali Ndume and Abubakar Kiyarin. APC State Chairman Ali Bukar Dolori, and two members of the House of Representatives, Dr. Haruna Michelia and Ahmed Jaha, are both members of General Zirkushu, a 28-member Brigade and Askira-Uba, representing constituencies including Chibok. He was attacked by gunmen, and the general died.
The head of state comforted the family and urged them to comfort him with the legacy of the late General.
Zulum said the people of Borno will always be grateful for the sacrifices made by the late General and his fellow soldiers.
Meanwhile, the Kaduna State government has announced a N2m donation to support the families of those killed.
Homeland Security and Home Affairs Commissioner Samuel Aruwa announced the donation shortly after Governor Zulum released $ 20 million to his family.
Aruwan denied the allegations and said Boron was to reach out to the family of the deceased general.
Speaking on behalf of the family and the Nigerian army, Garrison Commander Brigadier General T. O’One thanked the governor and his delegation for visiting the family from Maiduguri.
