The Federal Government has pledged its commitment to collaborate with the Kaduna State Government in providing compensation for the victims of the recent bombing in Kaduna.

In an interview with BBC Hausa, Minister of Defence, Badaru Abubakar, confirmed that investigations into the incident were underway.

The minister reiterated the government’s dedication to supporting those undergoing medical treatment and assured that anyone responsible for the attack would face the full consequences of their actions.

He said, “We are deeply saddened by the occurrence of this incident. May Allah forgive those who died and grant them Jannah.

“Indeed, we have suffered a great loss, we have confirmed that it was the Nigerian Army who was responsible for this incident. They have told us that it was a mistake, but a thorough investigation will be conducted to determine the exact details of what happened and how to prevent similar incidents from happening in the future.

“We are grateful to the Kaduna State Government for their swift response to this incident. They have already hospitalised the victims and promised to work with us to provide compensation, I heard this on the radio.

“Although there has been no formal communication between us yet, we are working on a statement and we will determine how to support the families of the deceased.”

The minister further said that a thorough investigation would identify those responsible for the error, but it was important to avoid actions that could demoralize the army.

“While security and war operations are inherently complex and demanding, a thorough investigation will identify those responsible for this error. Holding them accountable is necessary to ensure future success.

“This situation presents a delicate balance. We must thoroughly investigate the error while simultaneously avoiding actions that could demoralize our forces. Striking the right balance is crucial for maintaining operational effectiveness,” he added.
