Farmers Demand Investigation, Compensation for Victims of Kaduna Drone Misfire

The Nigeria Farmers Supreme Council, NIFSCON, has sought thorough investigations into the Tudun Biri Drone attacks in Kaduna State. 

The National President, Dr. Aliyu Muhammad-Waziri, made the call when he addressed the press in Kaduna on Saturday. 

He said: “We have 20 million members in Nigeria, with some of them among the victims of the mistaken drone attacks in the Tudun Biri community. 

“I am therefore tendering our heartfelt condolences to the families of the deceased and praying to the Almighty Allah to grant them Aljanaatu Firdaus.”

Dr. Muhammad-Waziri then emphasized on the need for the government to begin thorough investigations and bring the culprits to justice, adding that adequate compensation should be paid to victims. 

However, he commended President Tinubu for expressing his sincere concerns on the incident. 

While appreciating Governor Uba Sani for taking swift actions on the incident, he said: “we have accepted the apology of the military that the incident was a mistake. 

“However, the military and other security agencies should employ more caution while conducting similar operations in the future to avoid such costly mistakes. 

“There is also the need for more training and retaining of their personnel and the deployment of modern surveillance equipment in their operations to avoid such unpalatable colossal damages. 

“I am however appealing to the Muslim Ummah not to take law into their hands, but they should allow the law to take its course. 

“And we strongly insist that justice should be done to the victims as promised by President Tinubu and Governor Sani,” he said.
