President Goodluck Jonathan has condemned Friday night’s bombing in the Bayan Gari area of Bauchi State and the recent mass killings in Southern Kaduna.
In release on Sunday by his Special Adviser on Media and Publicity, Dr. Reuben Abati, the President commiserated with the families of the victims who lost their lives in the new “heinous attacks” and extended his heartfelt sympathies to all those “who suffered injuries or lost their properties during the wanton assaults on Bauchi and Kaduna States”.
The President reassured the people of the two states (Bauchi and Kaduna) that the Federal Government would continue to take all necessary action to apprehend the perpetrators of the dastardly attacks and restore the fullest possible security to all parts of the country.
Abati pointed out that the President has again directed all relevant federal government agencies to continue to speedily make emergency medical and relief assistance available to all those who were either injured or displaced by recent bombings and attacks.
President Jonathan in the statement urged all Nigerians to give maximum support and cooperation to the military and other security agencies who continue to work “incessantly to end the menace of insecurity in the country within the shortest possible
In a related development, the All Progressive Congress (APC) has described the Bauchi bombing as despicable and posited it that was the handiwork of the misguided terrors. The Party condemned the attack in a release on Sunday by its National Publicity Secretary, Alhaji Lai Muhammad.
However, APC repeated its call to the Federal government on the urgent need to review its strategy on war against the insurgents as well as to reach out to other willing stakeholders, with respect to the way forward on the security quagmire unfolding in the country.
The Friday Bauchi night bombing in which many lives perished and scores wounded, occurred barely 72 hours after Emab Shopping Plaza eruption in Wuse II Abuja last Wednesday evening in which 21 lives confirmed wasted, while several others sustained severe injuries. Nobody has claimed responsibility to the latest bombings.
