Abuja - Former Presidential Candidate of the defunct Action Congress of Nigeria (ACN), Nuhu Ribadu, has condemned the bomb blast that rocked a motor park in Nyanya area of Abuja on Monday morning.
“This is again another sad day for Nigerians. I'm completely devastated by this early morning news of explosions in Nyanya, a suburb of Abuja which is host to a bulk of our workforce. Where exactly have we, and especially the reported 200 unfortunate casualties of the blasts, gone wrong to have been subjected to this endless chain of tragedies,” Ribadu said.
He sent condolences to the family of all citizens killed in the blast.
“My heartfelt condolences to the family of all innocent citizens killed in this dysfunction of a nation. We are being confronted by a people who have no understanding of humanity.”
He called for all to unite against "a monstrous reality seeking to terminate our existence as a people and as a nation."
Scores of people were killed and various vehicles were also destroyed in the blast in Abuja.
The explosion blasted through a busy commuter bus station on the outskirts of the city as hundreds of people were preparing to go to work.
It is suspected the Boko Haram insurgents are behind the bombing.
