Group condemns Nyanya bomb blast
A non-governmental organization, Inter-Faith Activity and Partnership for Peace (IFAPP) has condemned last week’s Abuja bomb blast and the abduction of female students in Borno State.
A statement issued by the conveners of the group, Malam Nuruddeen Lemu and Rev. Fr. George Ehusani accused the government of not doing enough to protect the lives of ordinary Nigerian citizens.
The group said persistent insecurity in the country was encouraging aggrieved citizens to take matters into their hands.
It further condemned the deployment of large percentage of security agents to protect few economic and political elite while the vast majority of the ordinary citizens are left unattended to.
They called on federal government and its security agencies to investigate the incidents and make those responsible face the law and further embrace more preventive measures to protect more lives and properties.
The group who commiserated with the victims of the attack and their families also urged Boko-Haram insurgents to put a stop to their attacks saying such actions could not lead to the resolution of any of their grievances.
