ABUJA – The FCT Minister, Sen. Bala Mohammed, has directed free medical treatment and feeding for victims of the May 1 Nyanya bomb blast.
Mohammed gave the directive after visiting the Asokoro District Hospital on Thursday night where some of the injured victims are receiving treatment.
The minister condemned the blast, describing it as a serious emergency.
Bala condoled with the families of those who died, commiserated with the injured and assured FCT residents that the
security agencies would ensure their safety.
He appealed to the FCT residents to be calm and vigilant while going about their normal duties.
“What happened was an incident that could not be foreseen, as insurgencies are occurrences that are difficult to predict,” he said.
Mohammed said that the perpetrators would not succeed in destabilising Nigeria, adding that Nigerians would emerge stronger and more united from the current challenges.
A bomb blast at Nyanya on Thursday claimed 19 lives and injured 60 people. (NAN)
