Abuja - The People’s Democratic Party (PDP) has condemned the killing of 43 students in Federal Government College in Buni Yadi, Yobe State.
The ruling party, in a statement signed by the National Publicity Secretary, Chief Olisa Metuh, on Wednesday described the attack and killing of the students as “monstrous” and “extremely shocking.”
“The massacre of these harmless students cannot be justified under any guise. Indeed, the PDP is heart-broken and extremely devastated by this act of wickedness which can only be associated with the devil. The PDP bleeds inside as we mourn the slaughtering of these promising young ones. Our hearts go out to the parents and families of these innocent students. We share in their anguish, their pain and their despair and we earnestly pray that those behind this act must not escape judgment for spilling the blood of the innocent. No man commits such wickedness and gets away with it,” Metuh stated.
The party urged Nigerians to unite against terrorism in the country.
“Nigerians must jettison all political partisanship and rally round President Goodluck Jonathan in his untiring efforts in tackling the problem of insecurity in the country,” Metuh added.
His party commended Jonathan for the measures so far applied in fighting insurgency in the country and urged the people to continue to pray for the nation and give support to the security forces especially in the area of intelligence gathering and commiserated with the families of the slain students.
Metuh said the government and the people of Yobe state and prayed God to give them the fortitude to bear the loss.
Suspected Islamic militants killed the students in a pre-dawn attack at the school in the northeastern part of the country.
