The leadership of the opposition All Progressives Congress (APC) has condemned the recent bombings that left many dead and injured scores in Maiduguri over the weekend, warning that those behind the continued killing and maiming of innocent people will not go unpunished.
Speaking through a press statement issued in Lagos on Monday by its National Publicity Secretary, Alhaji Lai Mohammed, APC expressed its condolence with the families of those killed as well as the government and people of Borno state.
It prayed that God will grant repose to the souls of the innocent citizens who were sent to their early graves, while wishing those who were injured a speedy recovery.
”As we have said many times, nothing in the world justifies the killing of innocent men, women and children, and the cowards who have continued to kill and maim must realize that they will not escape justice, no matter how long it takes,” APC said.
The party called for vigilance among the people of the state and indeed the entire North-east, against the background of the stepped-up fight against the terrorists.
