House of Representatives Speaker Aminu Waziri Tambuwal has said the twin bombings in Kaduna on Wednesday as cruel, barbaric and heinous crime.
He noted that targeting prominent persons, as it happened in the twin blasts, was regrettable and condemnable.
In a statement yesterday in Abuja by his Special Adviser on Media and Public Affairs, Malam Imam Imam, the Speaker said killing innocent persons cannot be justified under any guise.
He said whoever was behind the Kaduna blasts should be brought to justice.
Tambuwal thanked God that the apparent targets – General Muhammadu Buhari and Sheikh Dahiru Usman Bauchi – escaped unhurt.
But the Speaker was sad that many people were killed in the blasts.
“Our sympathy and condolences are with the families of the victims of the blast. Their loved ones did not die in vain,” he said.
The Speaker prayed for the quick recovery of those injured or traumatised in the blasts.
