Abuja - The People's Democratic Party (PDP) accused the opposition All Progressives Congress (APC) for the bomb attack that claimed scores of people outside Abuja on Monday morning.
PDP said the bomb attack was "barbaric", "monstrous" and "extremely wicked." "We stand by our earlier statements that these attacks on our people are politically motivated by unpatriotic persons, especially those in the APC, who have been making utterances and comments, promoting violence and blood-letting as a means of achieving political control. Nigerians are also aware of utterances by certain APC governors which have been aimed at undermining our security forces and emboldening insurgents against the
people. Those who have been promoting violence through their utterances can now see the monster they have created. They can now see the end product of their comments; a country flowing daily with the blood of the innocent," PDP stated.
It expressed grief at the attacks.
"The PDP weeps. We are indeed grief-stricken. Our hearts go out to the bereaved, especially those who have been orphaned and widowed and those now deprived of their bread winners by this evil act. We share in their pain, their anguish and their loss and pray that those behind their grief must not escape justice," the party stated from Abuja.
It said on the contrary, APC, whose officials could not be reached for comment, "felt nothing."
"Of course they feel nothing. Their hearts have been hardened and they are embittered by the fact that they have been rejected by the people."
