Abuja - Canada called for the prosecution of perpetrators of the deadly bomb blasts that left more than 80 people dead in Kaduna State on Wednesday.
Deepak Obhrai, Parliamentary Secretary to the Minister of Foreign Affairs and for International Human Rights, condemned the attack that left scores others injured.
"On behalf of all Canadians, I call for swift justice for the perpetrators of this violence and offer our sincere condolences to the families and friends of the victims” Obhraj said in a statement from Ottawa, Canada on Thursday.
"Canada condemns in the strongest terms the two terrorist attacks in Nigeria’s Kaduna region, which killed at least 82 innocent victims. These cowardly acts took place on one of the most important nights of Ramadan, and reports are that one of the bombs targeted former Nigerian leader General Buhari. They also follow on the heels of Boko Haram’s brutal destruction of Damboa and recent attacks on Chibok, the hometown of the kidnapped girls,” read the statement.
It is believed the Boko Haram masterminded the attack in Kaduna.
Such attacks have claimed the lives of more than 2 000 people since the beginning of the year.
