Daily Trust - - NEWS - By Mau­reen Onochie

A civil so­ci­ety or­gan­i­sa­tion, the Cen­ter for Lead­er­ship and Cit­i­zens Aware­ness (CLCA), has con­demned last week’s Abuja bomb blast and the ab­duc­tion of over 100 school girls in Chi­bok, Borno State.

Ad­dress­ing news­men in Abuja yes­ter­day, Di­rec­tor Gen­eral of the cen­ter Dr. Nwambu Gabriel said it was un­for­tu­nate that the in­sur­gent has pre­ferred to at­tack “soft tar­gets such as schools, places of wor­ship, and crowded places amongst other places.”

He said the ul­ti­mate aim of the in­sur­gents was to in­flict fear amongst the people thereby caus­ing mis­trust, lack of con­fi­dence and con­se­quently in­cit­ing pop­u­lace against the govern­ment.

He called on the govern­ment to fol­low up on the funds made avail­able to se­cu­rity agencies and en­sure that they are ap­pro­pri­ately uti­lized.
