The leader of the nation extends his sincere condolences to the families of the Boko Haram victims as well as to the government and people of Adamawa and Kano states correspondingly.


He gave the assurance to Nigerians that his government is very much determined to crush the Boko Haram in the country and bring all perpetrators of these atrocious crime against humanity to justice.

Meanwhile, the president believed that vigilance is a probable life saver, since security agents cannot be everywhere to discourage every planned attack.

Kano police say that two female suicide attackers have killed 13 people in a market in northern Nigeria's main city.

This is the first attack on Kano since July six, happening barely a day after a similar explosion took out the crowded park in Yola, Adamawa state, where more than 30 people were killed by a suicide bomber in an attack blamed on Boko Haram.
