Daily Trust - - NEWS - By Lat­i­fat Opoola

Mem­bers of the Borno and Yobe States People’s Fo­rum in Abuja have con­demned the Nyanya Bomb blast on Mon­day in Abuja, de­scrib­ing it as bar­baric.

The blast killed 75 people and in­jured more than 100 oth­ers.

In a state­ment signed by its sec­re­tary Am­bas­sador B.K. Kaigama, the group urged se­cu­rity agencies to ex­pe­dite their in­ves­ti­ga­tions, iden­tify the cul­prits and bring them to book.

It also ex­pressed its con­do­lences to the fam­i­lies of those who lost their lives in the blast and also sym­pa­thised with the fam­i­lies and friends of the in­jured.

The group fur­ther called on the people to co­op­er­ate fully with se­cu­rity per­son­nel to help bring this men­ace to an end, and fur­ther urged all its mem­bers to go to the near­est blood collection cen­ter and do­nate blood as a to­ken of sol­i­dar­ity with the sur­vivors.
