The governor noted that police investigation had established that the incident was not a terror or politically motivated attack but a family disagreement over inheritance.

Yusuf said, “For the avoidance of any doubt, the incendiarism that led to the d3ath of 15 out of the 24 victims was neither politically motivated nor a terrorist attack on the residents of the state.”

The governor donated N100,000 to each of the victims.
