Reacting to the Wednesday’s twin explosion that rocked Kaduna city, the ruling party, Peoples Democratic Party, (PDP), Thursday said it was now apparent that terrorists were capable of attacking anybody in the country.
The bombings in Kaduna which is believed to be an assassination attempt on the lives of a former military head of state, Gen. Muhammadu Buhari (retd.) and an Islamic cleric Sheikh Dahiru Bauchi claimed the lives of more than 82 innocent Nigerians.
PDP described the attacks as dastardly and unfortunate.
This was contained in a statement issued by the party National Publicity Secretary, Olisa Metuh .

Muhammadu Buhari (retd.) and Sheikh Dahiru Bauchi whose convoys were affected in the incident.
“We sincerely sympathise with General Buhari. Our hearts go out to him and all those affected in these wicked attacks.”
He said the ruling party was shocked by the ugly development, and therefore reiterated PDP’s call on all Nigerians to unite against acts of terrorism irrespective of ethnic, political and religious affiliations adding that “it has become clear that any body could be a target.”
He, however, cautioned opposition leaders to be careful with their utterances regarding the unfortunate incident, saying that Nigerians must unite for the nation to win the war against terror.
The party also charged security agencies to ensure a thorough investigation into the attacks as well as intensify their efforts in the overall fight against insurgency in Nigeria.[eap_ad_3]
