The speaker of the House of Representatives, Rt. Hon. Yakubu Dogara has described as callous, insensitive and cowardly the suicide bomb attack at a mosque in the commercial town of Mubi, Adamawa state which claimed many lives.
In a statement by his Special Adviser on Media and Public Affairs, Turaki Hassan, the Speaker expressed shock and concern that the wanton killing was targeted at innocent worshipers performing their obligatory religious duty.
“I am deeply pained and saddened by this tragic incident which is a setback to our successes recorded in the restoration of peace in the North East zone”, he said.
While condoling with the families of the victims as well as the government and people of Adamawa state over the sad incident, Dogara reiterated his call on the Nigerian security forces to focus on intelligence gathering and timely deployment of information to stem terrorism.
