The Presidential Victims Support Fund on Friday donated N40 million to the victims of the bomb attack that occurred on Wednesday in Kano.
The money was given to victims of the blast who are currently receiving treatment at the Aminu Kano Teaching Hospital (AKTH) and Murtala Muhammad specialists Hospital, Kano.
The Executive Director of the Fund, Prof. Sunday Ochoche, announced the donation during a visit to the two hospitals.

Ochoche, who led the team, said they were in Kano to commiserate with the government, the victims and people of the state over the unfortunate incident.
“The Fund gave N20 million to each of the two hospitals we visited, making it a total of N40 million.

The executive director disclosed that before coming to Kano, the team had visited 14 hospitals in the North-East.
“ We have so far given out N240 million for the affected victims, including the N40m million given to the Kano hospitals,” he said.
