Also, Engr Abubakar of the Kano State Emergency Management Agency said security personnel at the scene are not helping matters as they are being prevented from doing their job
“The scene has been cordoned off by security agencies and we have been shut out. We are about two kilometres to the scene. Everybody is here, including the Red Cross and other agencies. We have important work to do at the scene, but we are here. We don’t know what to do,” Engr. Abubakar said.
