It was gathered that the opposition Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) on Tuesday condemned the multiple bomb attacks in Maiduguri, the Borno State capital on Saturday October 29 and Sunday October 30, 2016, respectively.
The attacks which took place in Maiduguri on Saturday, killing about 6 people, and the ambushing of our military the following day being Sunday in Damboa, Borno state by the Boko Haram sect is unfortunate and barbaric.
In a statement by the party’s national publicity secretary, Prince Dayo Adeyeye, the party said, “We commend the Special Operation Unit of our Military, ‘Operation Lafia Dole’ for their courage and commitment to security of lives and property in the Nort-East irrespective of threat to life of their officers and men in the line of duty. We again commend the Military for averting another attack late Sunday, October 30, 2016.
“While we applaud the dexterity of our officers and men in the field, we wish to further advise the All Progressive Congress (APC) led Federal Government to stop the needless and diversionary propaganda on issues of insurgency in the Northeast and rather concentrate more in providing all the moral and technical support needed by the Military to end this campaign of terror.”
The party called on all Nigerians to continue to support government at all levels in the fight against Boko Haram insurgency, saying that, “the battle indeed is not only for security agencies but for all citizens to provide information available to them that will aid government in the fight against terrorism”.
