NBA urges ex­tra ef­fort to stop in­sur­gency

Daily Trust - - NEWS - By Ade­lanwa Bamg­boye

The Nige­rian Bar As­so­ci­a­tion (NBA) has called on the Federal Govern­ment to re­dou­ble its ef­fort to bring to end in­se­cu­rity in the coun­try.

The NBA Pres­i­dent Okey Wali, SAN said this in a state­ment yes­ter­day in Abuja.

He de­scribed the bomb ex­plo­sion at the Nyanya Mo­tor Park which claimed the lives of over 70 Nige­ri­ans and wounded more than 100 as act of ter­ror­ism that “brings to the fore, the in­creas­ing high level of in­se­cu­rity in Nigeria.”

“The NBA out rightly con­demns the at­tack in the strong­est of terms. It is sense­less, cal­lous, dev­il­ish and animalistic. Noth­ing can ex­plain this. This is very much unnige­rian,” the NBA Pres­i­dent said.

“We hereby re­peat our call on the Federal Govern­ment to re­dou­ble its ef­forts in the war against ter­ror and ter­ror­ists, as well as their back­ers, no mat­ter who and where they may be found.”
