ABUJA-Speaker of the House of Representatives, Aminu Waziri Tambuwal, has condemned the Monday morning bomb blast which killed dozens of commuters and other innocent Nigerians in Abuja.
In a statement issued in Calabar by his Special Adviser on Media and Public Affairs, Malam Imam Imam, Tambuwal described the attack as cowardly and barbaric.
He said all Nigerians must join hands to bring an end to the spate of wanton killings in the country.
According to him, considering the pattern of previous attacks in the country, security agencies should beef up surveillance around motor parks and related areas all over the federation.
The Speaker further urged security agencies to ensure that the perpetrators of the violent act are brought to justice.
He said the gains recorded by the security agencies in their battle against terror should be consolidated in order to protect the citizens at all times.
While condoling with the families of those who lost loved ones in the blast, Tambuwal prayed for the quick recovery of those injured.
Another Rep member, Ibrahim Shehu Gusau representing Gusau/Tsafe Federal Constituency, Zamfara state said “It is a very sad day for everybody and I want to use this opportunity to condole all of us on the event that happened today.
It is very sad, I do not know what anger on the need to do this to vent their anger, it is sad that early this morning citizens woke up to go for their daily bread and then for this callous thing to happen.
I really do not know how to explain this because every Nigerian is one of us regardless of where he/she is from. I condole all of us and may God stop this henceforth”
