The Sultan of Sokoto Alhaji Sa’ad Abubakar has condemned the bombing of Nyanya area of Abuja by suspected Boko Haram members.
Sultan Sa’ad Abubakar, who was speaking at a ceremony in Kaduna, prayed that God would expose the perpetrators of the heinous act that claimed several lives and destroyed property worth millions of naira.
He expressed concern over the continued killings of innocent Nigerians, noting that Muslims were at the receiving end of the ugly trend.
The Nigeria Labour Congress has described yesterday’s bombing in Abuja as barbaric and a sore reminder that the battle against terror is far from over.
The congress in a statement signed by its President, Abdulwaheed Omar condoled with the families of those that lost their lives and the injured and urged Nigerians to stand together as one family united by grief and threat to nation’s collective well-being.
The NLC said government needs to do more to reassure Nigerians about their safety as it takes more than regular effort to confront an enemy.
The statement called on for the full and immediate implementation of the reports of the two committees set up by the Federal Government on Boko Haram Insurgency.
