Senator Victor Ndoma-Egba Condemns Kaduna Bombing

Senate Leader, Senator Victor Ndoma-Egba has congratulated Archbishop of Abuja Catholic Diocese, Bishop John Onaiyekan, on his elevation as a Cardinal by Pope Benedict XVI. In a  statement in Abuja, the Senate Leader also expressed worry about the timing of the bombing of a Catholic Church in Malali, Kaduna State, coming on the heels of the euphoria of Onaiyekan's elevation.

The bomb explosion reportedly killed 15 people and injured over 100 on Sunday. Ndoma-Egba noted that evil forces who were obviously not happy with peace ushered in by the Sallah celebrations which saw Christians joining their Muslim brothers to celebrate the festival were behind the weekend bombing.

On the Malali, Kaduna bombing, Ndoma-Egba expressed worry about the choice of Kaduna State when adherents of the two religion had earlier gathered to celebrate the Sallah together: "It is curious that two days before the dastardly act, Christians and Muslim faithfuls gathered together on Sallah day to celebrate the festival.

He said he  find this new spate of bombing not only wicked but evil for anyone to wreak such havoc less than 24 hours after residents of both religions celebrated together in the spirit of peace, tolerance and brotherhood.

The Senate Leader enjoined those affected not to engage in reprisal killings just as he urged them to leave revenge to God.
