Atiku intervened against this trend Monday, asking security agencies to swing into action immediately and thoroughly investigate, apprehend and severely punish those behind the hate song.
“I call on the security agencies to thoroughly and decisively swing into action and apprehend, try, convict and severely punish those behind this ungodly song which incites racial hatred.”
Atiku said the effects of hate in any shape or form were made even more evident over the weekend in a shooting incident that left many Nigerians reeling with shock; and commiserated with the people of Ozubulu in Anambra State, who lost family members in the fatal shooting that also left scores dead and many others injured.
The committee, in a statement made available to THISDAY in Kano, said there was the need for more time to enable it to do a thorough job.
“Accordingly, the meeting adjourned to reconvene in the next 10 days where a final resolution on issues will be achieved.”
