President Bola Tinubu on Tuesday called for a thorough investigation into a military drone attack that killed at least 85 civilians in northern Kaduna State over the weekend.

The strike, which was intended to hit insurgents, is one of the country’s deadliest military accidents.

Tinubu said the “the bombing mishap” in Tundun Biri village was “very unfortunate, disturbing and painful,” his spokesperson Ajuri Ngelale said in a statement.

Nigeria’s military, backed by the United States and Britain, as well as non-Western allies, has long been fighting Islamist militants in the country’s northeast. It routinely uses airstrikes to target insurgent groups.
