When I heard this report, I wasn't in the least gobsmacked. If anything, I saw it coming, knowing how fanatical some northern Muslims can be.
People in Kawo, Angwarimi, Tudun Wada Pawa, Angwan Dosa, Mararaban Rido, some parts of Zaria and other surrounding villages are having “a shocking but fanatical jubilation” with youths driving bikes recklessly as if its Sallah celebration.
All Mai shayi joints are full with smiling faces of people who are delighted in ignorance that a brother died, that a governor who has given leadership his best, a man that in honesty excelled more than any governor in the North today died, simply because he is not one of us.
He is a Christian, and one of our own, a Muslim brother will replace him as the state new governor...they say.
This is a big shame and quite embarrassing to an average God fearing Muslim, who is aware that life and death is only in the hands of Allah most compassionate. – Aliyu Bello.
