PDP condemns latest Kano, Yobe terror attacks

25 February 2015, 07:58Augustine Osayande

Abuja - The ruling People’s Democratic Party (PDP) has condemned the deadly terror attacks in Kano town and Potuskum in the Kano and Yobe States respectively.

The PDP, through a statement by its National Publicity Secretary, Olisa Metuh, said the party was “deeply saddened by the news of the attack in the two northern cities, which claimed the lives of harmless citizens going about their legitimate endeavors.”

“Indeed, the PDP mourns. We are deeply pained by these attacks on our citizens. Our hearts and prayers go out to the bereaved and the wounded. We share in their pain and pray that those behind their grief must not escape justice,” the party said.

The party insisted that the attacks could be justified under any guise.

It urged Nigerians not to be deterred but remain united and continue to support the Federal Government in the war against terrorism.

It also commiserated with the families of those who lost their lives and prayed God to give them the fortitude to bear the loss.

The suicide bombers targeting a bus station in Kano, killed 10 people and left several injured Tuesday, according to the city's police chief, just hours after a similar attack in Yobe killed 17 people.

The attacks came amid threats by the Islamic militant Boko Haram it would intensify attacks in the period leading to elections.

Ironically, elections scheduled for mid and late February were postponed and rescheduled by six weeks, with hopes government would have eliminated the terror that has killed more than 13 000 and displaced over a million in recent years.
