“We are here to physically see and also talk directly to the people, victims, and families and make an assessment for the Federal Government,” Ribadu said.
“It is a tragedy and misfortune. But it has happened. What matters is how we move forward, what we are going to learn from here, and what exactly we need to do,” he added.
Ribadu made this comment in the company of senators from northern Nigeria who went on a fact-finding visit to the village, according to ChannelsTV.
