The Kaduna State Governor, Uba Sani has declared that the recent accidental bombing of Tudun Biri village by the Nigerian Army has no link with ethnic or religious cleansing.

The Governor made the declaration on Friday while speaking during an interview on Channels Television.

He assured that his administration is working with the people of the state to ensure religious and ethnic harmony.

“Let me make it clear (that) in Kaduna State, we don’t have any religious or ethnic differences,” Governor Sani said.

“At the beginning, a lot of people particularly the religious and ethnic merchants, I’m not surprised if some of them decided to make this issue look like it’s a religious issue. As governor of Kaduna State, we are working together as a team in religious harmony.”

It would be recalled that the drone bombing which occurred on Sunday at Tudun Biri village in Igabi Local Government Area of Kaduna State left over 85 people dead and several others injured.
