Speaker of the House of Representatives, Hon Aminu Waziri Tambuwal, has described the twin blasts which rocked the city of Kaduna Wednesday as cruel, barbaric and heinous crime.
According to him, the targeting of prominent persons, as seen from the blasts, is both regrettable and condemnable.
In a statement issued by his Special Adviser on Media and Public Affairs, Malam Imam Imam, Tambuwal said killing of innocent persons cannot be justified under any guise, adding that whoever is behind the Kaduna incidents should be pursued and brought to justice.
While thanking God that the apparent targets of the attacks, General Muhammadu Buhari and Sheikh Dahiru Usman Bauchi, have escaped unhurt, Tambuwal expressed sadness over the loss of innocent lives.
“Our sympathy and condolences are with the families of the victims of the blast. Their loved ones did not die in vain,” he added.
The Speaker prayed for the quick recovery of those injured or traumatised by the dastardly acts.
