The immediate past interim National Chairman of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) and former Governor of Kaduna State, Senator Ahmed Mohammed Makarfi express worry over the twin suicide bombings in Mubi, Adamawa State that left many worshipers dead.
Senator Makarfi, in a statement by his spokesperson, Malam Mukhtar Zubairu Sirajo condemns “this heinous, barbaric and cowardly act, the first of which was perpetrated in a mosque against worshippers communing with God, ostensibly in the name of a religion whose respect for the sacredness of human life is so absolute that it equates the murder of a single person with the killing of the entire mankind.”
The Senator believes that these perpetrators, rather than God, are worshipping and serving the demon “and there is, therefore, the need for the forging of a united front to confront the menace that they pose.”
“This should include among others, digging beneath the surface into the socioeconomic and even political circumstances that encourage the breeding of the monster,” he said.
The former governor believes that the government and the security agencies need to up the ante in the fight against insurgency, especially in the area of intelligence gathering and de-indoctrination so that future attempts can be nipped in the bud and the humongous anti-insurgency expenditure can be justifiably explained.
