He further stated that families of the fallen heroes would also benefit from the palliatives that would be distributed to the people of the state.

“During the distribution of palliative in the state, I have instructed the committee to extend the gesture to the families of the fallen heroes,” he stated.

The governor said that his administration would continue to work with security agencies in protecting the lives and property of residents of the state.

“Anything the security agencies require to do their jobs, we are ready to come in and support them to perform optimally,” he noted.

The News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) reports that Emir of Kano, Alhaji Aminu Ado-Bayero and some other dignitaries witnessed the wreath-laying at the Fallen Heroes Centre, located at Zaria road in Kano.

NAN also reports that the armed forces remembrance day is celebrated globally to recognise and appreciate the sacrifices made by members of the armed forces to ensure peace and unity.

In Nigeria, January 15 is set aside annually to honour the fallen heroes who laid down their lives in service to humanity during the First and Second World Wars, Nigerian civil war, peace missions and various internal security operations.

The event is also used to honour the war veterans who are still alive and as a medium of soliciting financial, moral and material support for the families of the fallen heroes
