The Federal Government has condemned in string terms the suicide bomb attacks on a mosque and market in Mubi, Adamawa State on Tuesday.
In a statement Wednesday, Vice-President Yemi Osinbajo slammed the attacks by ‘criminals’, and promised FG’s prompt response to the victims, TheNation writes.
“This desecration of a place of worship by criminals is tragic and condemnable,” Vice President Professor Yemi Osinbajo said in a statement by his Senior Special Assistant on Media, Laolu Akande.
Osinbajo expressed condolences to the victims and their families, and to the Government and people of Adamawa State, adding that he’d been in touch with the State Governor Bindow Umaru Jibrilla, and has also directed the National Emergency Management Agency (NEMA) to ensure the speedy and adequate provision of medical supplies and relief materials to the victims.
He also expressed the gratitude of the Federal Government to the rescue workers and medical personnel who attended to the victims.
Relevant security agencies have also been directed to immediately take steps to beef up security in Mubi and environs, especially markets and places of worship that have often been targeted by the terrorists.
