He also stated that it is time for Nigeria to accept foreign assistance with fighting terrorism in the country.
Atiku said this in a statement by his media office in Abuja that this needless bloodletting cannot continue unabated and requires new strategies to end it.
He described those behind the bombings as evil and callous with no regard for the sanctity of human life.
He said the latest bombings by insurgents should be a wake-up call to all Nigerians on the imperative of ending the blame game and working together to end this scourge.
