Abuja - Leader of the People's Democratic Party (PDP) in Borno State, Mohammed Wakil, has condemned the Tuesday bomb blast in Maiduguri and the killings in Damasak by the Boko Haram sect.
Wakil, who is Minister of State Power, said such violations were a continuation of inhuman conduct and actions of insurgency.
According to a press statement signed by Olawale Rasheed, Special Assistant to the Minister on Media, he described the killings as “sad and depressing.”
“This heartless killing is not only unIslamic but inhuman and animalistic. It is reprehensible and highly condemnable,” the minister said.

He added that killings of innocent ones seeking their daily livelihoods could be in service of Almighty Allah,calling on the insurgents and their backers to stop the bloodshed and accept the olive branch from the Federal Government.
“I commiserate with the victims and their families .I am a victim;we are all victims. I want to assure our people that President Goodluck Jonathan is doing all that is necessary to stop the insurgency," the PDP state leader said.
"Our security agencies are daily re - strategising to defeat the insurgents but this is a guerilla war which is conventionally a very difficult war for the security agencies.
"I solicit support of our people for security agencies to defeat the insurgents .We must all join hands to ensure that the terrorists are defeated,” the minister pleaded.
