Shettima vows to continue campaigns despite convoy attack
“Leadership requires courage. I will go back to Gamboru Ngala next week and ready to pay the supreme price if need be and I will not be going in a bulletproof car,” shettima said on Tuesday.
ISIS, in a statement claimed that 42 people were killed in the attack on the Governor’s motorcade.
Shettima’s Special Adviser on Communications and Strategy, Malam Isa Gusau, confirmed the attack in a statement but said three persons were killed.
However, addressing State House Correspondents after a Security briefing at the Presidential Villa, Abuja, on Monday, Shettima said the attacks will not deter him from meeting with the people even if it will cost his life.
“But believe me, no matter how long the night is, darkness must give away to the light of the dawn. No matter how stormy the weather may well be, it won’t rain forever.
This madness will come to an end because it is fight between light and darkness, it is a fight between cause and justice.”
Shettima, joined by the Governors of Kaduna state, Nasir El-Rufai and Jibrilla Bindow among others had met behind closed doors with the service chiefs including the national security adviser and the Inspector General of Police Mohammed Adamu at the State House, Abuja.
