Ndigbo in Kano State will today gather in their thousands at the luxury bus park in Sabon Gari in the state capital to honour their kinsmen who died in the terror attack on the park on March 18.
Special prayers for the repose of the souls of the victims will be said during an interdenominational service which will be held at the attack scene with victims’ relatives in attendance.
The Kano State branch of the Christian Association of Nigeria (CAN) will coordinate the spiritual programme that will be presided over by its chairman, Bishop Ramson Bello.
Reports say most Igbo traders in the Kano metropolis will not open their shops as a mark of respect for their departed kinsmen. A community leader, Igwe Boniface Ibekwe, however said that commercial activities will not be affected.
According to him, Ndigbo that wish to go about their normal businesses should do so.
