Senators condemn bombing of Kogi radio station

06 May 2015, 17:50

Abuja – The Senate has condemned the recent bombing of a Kogi radio station that left four workers dead.

Unknown assailants laid siege on Tao radio station on Monday.

The issue was brought to plenary on Wednesday through point of order by Senator Nuruden Abatomi Usman, representing Kogi Central at the upper chamber of the National Assembly.

“I want to notify the Senate and the entire Nigerians that the only means of public enlightenment in Kogi central Tao radion stations was bombed on Monday. The radio station is the only source of informations in the area,” Usman said.

He added that the people of the area have resolved to contribute money and assist in the rebuilding of the station.

In his remark, the Senate President, David Mark, said all the senators condemned the bombing of the radio station.

“We have been condemning all act of terrorism and we also condemned the bombing of Tao radio station in Okene Kogi State” Mark said.

Although no group has claimed responsibility for the bombing, it is feared the Islamic militant Boko Haram group bombed the station.
