“The Adamawa blast is most excruciating.The irritants reared their ugly heads again as one was beginning to heave a sigh of relief.

“Considering the assiduousness deployed against the matter by President Buhari, one had thought the worst was over.

“We commiserate with the families of those innocent men, women and children who lost their lives, and pray for repose of their souls,’’ Braimoh said.

The lawmaker said that such a blast should not be allowed at a time like this “when well-meaning citizens are striving to rebuild Nigeria.
