The twin bomb explosion in Kaduna Metropolis on Wednesday afternoon in which former Head of State, General Muhammadu Buhari escaped by whiskers has drawn condemnation from many Nigerians. President Goodluck Jonathan is in the lead of this, as he denounced the dastardly act which was targeted at the prominent political and religious leaders.
Jonathan in a statement today (Wednesday) by his Special Adviser on Media and Publicity, Dr. Reuben Abati, berated the Boko Haram terrorists’ “odious attempt to inflame passions and exacerbate disquiet, fear, insecurity and sectional divisions in the country”.
The President who thanked God on General Buhari and Sheikh Dahiru Bauchi’s survival in the attacks which claimed over 50 lives and recorded many injuries, extended condolences to the families of those who were killed by the blasts.
The nation’s leader also commiserated with all those who were injured in the twin eruptions stating that the latest bombing was a further proof that the terrorists were nothing but blood-thirsty extremists bent on undermining the unity and progress of the nation.
The statement revealed that the President has directed the Police and other national security agencies to take all necessary actions to apprehend the perpetrators of the attacks on Kaduna city and urged the residents to cooperate with them.
Meanwhile, the State Governor, Mukhtar Ramalan Yero later on Wednesday announced 24 hours curfew in order to allow the Police and other security operatives maintain law and order, while the anxiety and confusion created by the blast subside.
