President Goodluck Jonathan has condemned Friday night’s bombing in the Bayan Gari area of Bauchi State as well as the recent mass killings in Southern Kaduna.
Presidential spokesman, Reuben Abati, in a statement today, quoted Jonathan as commiserating with all the families that lost loved ones in the heinous attacks and extending his heartfelt sympathies to all those who suffered injuries or lost their properties during the wanton assaults on both states.
The president reassured the people of Bauchi and Kaduna State that the Federal Government would continue to take all necessary action to apprehend the perpetrators of the dastardly attacks and restore the fullest possible security to all parts of the country.
He also directed all relevant federal government agencies to continue to speedily make emergency medical and relief assistance available to all those who were either injured or displaced by recent bombings and attacks.
Jonathan urged all Nigerians to give maximum support and cooperation to the Armed Forces and security agencies “who continue to work incessantly to end the menace of insecurity in the country within the shortest possible time”.
