The House of Representatives‘ Northern Caucus promised N350 million on Monday, 11th December 2023, to help the Federal Government restore Tudun Biri, a hamlet in Kaduna State that was unintentionally bombed by the Nigerian Army last week.

A bomb that was meant to drive out criminals from Tudun Biri, in Kaduna State‘s ┬áIgabi Local Government Area, went off target, killing an estimated 120 innocent persons and injured numerous others.

Alhassan Doguwa, the leader of the Northern House Caucus, declared on Monday, 11th December 2023, that he planned to travel to the region to offer condolences to the families and survivors.

The group expressed their condemnation of the tragedy and their willingness to support the government in restoring normalcy to the area in a statement that the Kano congressman personally signed.

“The Northern caucus has announced a monetary donation of Mr. Speaker and that of the Northern regional caucus of the Federal House of Representatives amounting to the sum of N45 million cash,” the statement said in part.
