"Therefore,without mincing words, APC USA International Secretariat arises to condemn this menace meant for cowards using: vulnerable-less privileged, minors and brainwashed individuals,” said John

“(The attacks are) certainly uncalled for, not at this time we are witnessing progressive changes, whereas the nation is taking shape. Perpetrators of these atrocities are enemies of Nigeria and must be penalized, regardless of positions.”

John said it was mandatory to empower security operatives with latest security gadgets, early warning signs and fact finding for confidence and performance increment.

John said his organisation expressed condolences to the families that lost members to the Abuja attacks.

“The entire Diaspora sympathies with affected families, ask the Government and stakeholders, wealthy individuals to commemorate families in a timely manner."
