Abuja - Buhari Vanguard, the non-governmental organisation, has condemned the Kaduna State bomb blast which they believe targeted the convoy former president and chieftain of the All Progressive Congress (APC), Muhammadu Buhari.
More than 80 people were killed following twin bomb blasts in the state.
“We received with shock the news of the twin bomb blast in Kaduna state.
What is more shocking is that the bomb blasts were targeted at popular Nigerian leaders, Muhammadu Buhari, a leader of the All progressive Congress (APC) and Dahiru Bauchi, a popular Islamic cleric,” Buhari vanguard said in a statement signed by Chairman Jasper Azuatalam.
The organisation raised concern at the spate of deadly bombings and other acts of terror in the country.
“We are frightened that these attacks by suspected Boko Haram members have assumed a dangerous dimension and we fear that if this is not controlled immediately, our nation Nigeria may never recover from the negative results of this insurgence. If prominent Nigerians are no longer safe and cannot go about their normal duties, it will be horrible to imagine what the fate of the average Nigerian will be.”
Azuatalam said his organisation sincerely condoled with the families of the deceased and the injured.
It painted a grim picture of events that could have unfolded if Buhari and the cleric had not survived the attacks.
“One cannot help but imagine what would have been happening in Nigeria now if Gen Muhammadu Buhari and the popular Islamic cleric, Dahiru Bauchi were killed in these attacks today. The nation would have been in turmoil and the extent of further damages may be unimaginable. We must put off this fire before it consumes all of us.”
