Former Caretaker Committee chairman of Peoples Democratic Party, PDP, Senator Ahmed Mohammed Makarfi has expressed deep shock at the news of the dastardly twin suicide bombings at Mubi, Adamawa State, killing innocent people and injuring many.
Mukhtar Zubairu Sirajo, his spokesman in a statement made available said, “Senator Ahmed Mohammed Makarfi
is distraught at the news of the dastardly twin suicide bombings, which occurred in Mubi, Adamawa State, yesterday, taking the lives of many innocent people pursuing their legitimate endeavours.
“Senator Makarfi 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, according to the statement that these perpetrators, rather than God, are worshipping and serving the demon and there’s 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,” the statement observed.
Senator Makarfi expressed belief that the government and the security agencies need to up the ante in the fight against insurgency.
Senator Makarfi consoles with the families of the deceased, Mubi Emirate, government and people of Adamawa State and indeed the entire country over the unfortunate callousness and prayed for a speedy recovery to the injured.
