    Too bad ad they will be deceiving themselves that we are one Nigeria. Where is d one Nigeria? They are attacking d igbos in kano over an alleged burnt mosque which is only a false accusation all in a bid to get at d igbos. Once bitten twice shy, I want them to no that we are not cowards ad won’t let this continue.

    Please correct your report. The area you mentioned has more Hausa people than Igbos. Also this is not the first time that a fire outbreak at night has occurred at the Market. Please stop trying to incite violence.
