Recall on Sunday night the Nigerian Army dropped a bomb at Tudun Biri village in Igabi Local Government Area of Kaduna State, immediately killing dozens of people with many wounded.

The incident is said to be one of the country’s deadliest military bombing accidents.

The North-West zonal spokesman of the National Emergency Management Agency (NEMA), Halima Suleiman, confirmed that the wounded are 66.

She said the fatality figure was gotten from the local authorities after the burial of the victims on Monday.

“The Northwest Zonal Office has received details from the local authorities that 85 dead bodies have so far been buried while a search is still ongoing,” NEMA said.

However, emergency officials were still negotiating with community leaders to calm tensions to be able to reach the village.

President Bola Ahmed Tinubu on Tuesday ordered an investigation after the army acknowledged one of its drones accidentally struck Tudun Biri village as residents were celebrating a Muslim festival.

The army did not give any casualty figures, but residents had said 85 people, many of them women and children, had been killed in the incident.

Imagine. A whole community wiped out just like that and the Air Vice Marshall is still sitting tight in  his office? In a sane country he should have been thrown into the dust bin of unemployment market or jailed.
