The Abia government has promised to support the families of traders killed during last week’s attack at the new Omuma-Uzo Cattle Market.

Gov. Okezie Ikpeazu said this at Aba Governor’s Lodge when he received leaders of the Hausa Community in Aba, as well as Hausa leaders from Gombe and Adamawa.

This was contained in a statement by Mr Onyebuchi Ememankah, the Chief Press Secretary to the governor on Monday in Aba.

”The state government will provide some form of support for families of those who lost their lives during the attack and take care of the medical bills of the injured.

” The state government would also assist those whose livestock were killed to enable them to carry on with their businesses,” Ikpeazu said.

He restated his administration’s commitment to the security and welfare of all residents, irrespective of tribe or religion.

Ikpeazu described the incident as unfortunate and condemnable while commiserating with the families of the victims.

The governor said his administration accorded great priority to issues of peace and harmony.
