Jos legislator speaks on city bombing

22 May 2014, 08:29Augustine Osayande

Abuja - The Senator representing Plateau North at the National Assembly, Gyang Pwajok, has condemned the twin bomb attacks that occurred in Tuesday in Jos.

The lawmaker, in a statement by his Chief Media Officer, Chuwang Dung, expresses his sadness at the terrorist attack which killed dozens of people and injured many.

“I was deeply saddened and shocked when I heard of the bomb explosion in Jos, which falls in my constituency. I strongly condemned the act and also sympathized with the families of the bereaved and those who have suffered injury,” read a statement.

According to him, the attack is an attempt by some cowards to jeopardize the peace that has returned to Jos the state capital.

“This barbaric act was intended to promote fear and disunity within Jos metropolis and contribute to existing instability in the country.”

He urged security agencies not to allow the situation to cow them rather they should redouble their efforts in fighting terrorism in the country. The senator also restated his commitment to do everything possible to assist security and other relevant agencies to tackle the problems of insecurity in his constituency and the state at large.

He lauded those that engaged in the rescue mission and medical workers for the timely intervention and commitment.

This publication established that some aides of the lawmaker visit some of the hospitals to commiserate with the victims and ascertain the casualties.
