Global Shapers seeks support for blast victims
A group, the Abuja Global Shapers, has called for support for victims of the recent bomb blast in Abuja. The attack in Kuje and Nyanya areas of the Federal Capital Territory, which security officials say was coordinated, left atleast 20 dead and many others injured.
In a statement, Curator of the group, Jake Effoduh, commiserated with the victims’ families and all Nigerians on the incident. He called for intensified prayers and vigilance.
“We were at a meeting on Friday evening, to come up with plans on how to shape our community by spending a day teaching children at an IDP Camp, only to get home and hear of another attack . We all must work together to nip this problem in the bud; it could have been anybody. So, instead of just sitting back to lament, we decided to do something to assist the victims’’, he said.
He added that the group has also organized a donation drive for the families affected to cushion their suffering.
“This drive will accept items such as laundered used clothing, food items, toiletries among others. During our visit to the National Hospital, we did a needs assessment. We also met some of the victims.
Esther, 22-year-old polytechnic student in Nassarawa who came home to spend the weekend with her family lost her mum, sister and brother in the attack’s.
