Abuja - The All Progressives Congress (APC) called for a probe into a suspected attempt on the life of its chieftain, Muhammadu Buhari, in Kaduna State.
His convoy was reportedly targeted as more than 80 people were killed in twin bomb blast in the state on Wednesday.
He was said to be travelling to his village, Daura, when a vehicle trailed him.
“We urgently appeal to his (Buhari’s) supporters nationwide to please remain calm, in the face of what seems obvious provocation, but strongly urge Mr President (Goodluck Jonathan) to speedily set up a high powered probe to unravel those behind the suspicious bomb blast. This incident must not be treated as one of the usual Boko Haram atrocities as there seems to be more to it than meets the eye,” John Odigie-Oyegun, APC National Chairman, said in a statement.
The opposition party also expressed condolences to victims of the blasts.
“APC also expresses our heartfelt condolences for those who lost their lives in the first bomb blast which claimed scores of lives in Kaduna. We join their families in praying to Almighty God for the repose of the souls of the dead and speedy recovery of the injured,” APC stated.
The party reiterated their commitment for fully cooperate with the Jonathan administration in seeking solutions to the insurgency.
“We want to reiterate once again, that because of the innocent lives being lost on daily basis, we committed our great party to full cooperation with the Jonathan administration in seeking solutions to the insurgency. But the Jonathan is more intent on politicizing the issue to the extent of hiring propagandists from as far away as Russia and United States.”
