CBN donates N25m to Madalla bomb blast victims (While he gave $100m to Muslims victims in Kano)

THE Central Bank of Nigeria (CBN) Governor, Mallam Lamido Sanusi Lamido, on Monday, donated N25 million to victims of bomb blast at St Theresa’s Catholic Church, Madalla, Niger State.

Sanusi said he was making the donation on the strength of the bank’s corporate framework, enshrined in its Act, adding that when the incident happened in Madalla, he was outside the country and when he came back, the Kano blast happened.

According to him, he planned the Kano donation on Friday, while that of Madalla was scheduled for Monday.

While condemning the perpetrators of the blast, he said when Christians were attacked on Sundays or Muslims on Fridays, it was an attack on their faith.

Earlier, the parish priest of St Theresa’s Catholic Church, Reverend Isaac Achi, had recalled that a total of 127 persons were affected in the blast, though 44 died.

Responding, the Catholic Bishop of Minna Diocess, Dr Martins Igwemezie Uzoukwu, thanked the management of the bank for the gesture, adding that “your coming has given us enough will to quench the sorrows of our heart for those that died.”
