The Speaker of the House of Representatives, Rt. Hon. Yakubu Dogara, has condemned Friday night`s bomb attacks in Kuje and Nyanya, in the Federal Capital Territory.
In a statement issued by his Special Adviser on Media and Public Affairs, Turaki Hassan, Dogara described the attacks as callous and saddening.
He said the bomb blasts have shatteted the peace in and around Abuja for one year now.
I condole with families of victims of these dastardly, heinous and babaric acts
With the successes being recorded by the military in the North East it has become apparent that Boko Haram is facing imminent defeat after six years of terror reign in our country.
These well-coordinated and planned attacks were carried out to instill fear in the minds of the citizens.
We condemn it in its totality as the handwork of evil-possessed minds.
Nigerians cannot be cowed into caving in to terror.
I commiserate with families of the victims, may the good Lord grant them the fortitude to bear the irreparable losses.
I also pray God to grant quick healings and recovery to the injured.
While it is not in doubt that our security agencies are winning the war on terror, these kind of attacks show that there is much work to do about intelligence gathering and sharing.
Terrorism cannot be totally defeated with physical might as terrorists resort to different means to carryout horrible and monstrous acts as these.
There should be more of inter-agency intelligence gathering and sharing which is the surest way to prevent any such attack.
Nigerians should also be vigilant and security concious and help the security agencies with information.
I will call on all Nigerians to perverse in their prayers for peace and stability in our nation.
As people of faith, we all believe in the power of prayers and when we persist in prayers, God will surely answer us and give us victory over evil and bloodthirsty terrorists.
