The All Progressives Congress has strongly condemned Friday night’s bomb attacks in Kuje and Nyanya areas of Abuja that killed and injured many people, warning that no amount of cowardly attacks will save the Boko Haram terrorists from imminent defeat.
In a statement in Lagos on Saturday by its National Publicity Secretary, Alhaji Lai Mohammed, the party said the attacks, as well as other recent ones, were part of the “cowardly tactics of the terrorists to focus on soft targets, after the military has succeeded in putting them on the run”.
It said the “avowed determination of the Buhari administration to crush Boko Haram, which has seen the military recording a string of successes against the terrorists”, would not be weakened by “these dastardly acts that are nothing but the last kicks of a dying monster”.
APC appealed to Nigerians to be vigilant, explaining that Boko Haram members, who had been smoked out of their strongholds, might be seeking refuge elsewhere across the country.
The party condoled with the families of those who were killed in the latest Abuja attacks, and wished those who were injured a speedy recovery.
