Jama’atul Nasril Islam JNI yesterday condemned in stroger terms the bomb attacks at Kano State College of Education that killed and injured several, describing the attack as babaric.
The group urged Federal Government to investigate the killings and to ensure those responsible are brought to book.
In a statement signed by the Secretary-General of the group, Dr Khalid Abubakar Aliyu made available to newsmen in the state; JNI said it would continue to condemn such attacks on innocent Muslims so long they continue.
He said as usual JNI received with consternation and shock the bomb explosion and senseless killing of innocent students at the College which come after some relative calm in the state.
“This barbaric and callous attack is condemnable in its entirety; it will always demand for questions on what exactly the perpetrators want, are they blood tasty or it’s a conspiracy? JNI will continue to condemn so long as the denigrating acts continue.
“Also, as with previous similar cases, the sporadic gun shots that ensued after the blast is very worrisome and calls for practical investigation which must bring the perpetrators to face the wrath of the law and find ways and means of stopping future occurrence of such devilish act.
“However, as Muslims we find solace that there is the Day of retribution which all souls shall account for their deeds.” He said
The group commiserated with the Kano state government, the Emir of Kano and the families of the victims of the inhuman attack, even as it called on governments at all levels to do everything possible as a matter of urgency to stop the evil acts of terror repeatedly being unleashed on innocent souls.
