KADUNA — The Arewa Consultative Forum, ACF, has condemned Tuesday’s twin bomb blasts in Jos, capital of Plateau State, describing the incidents as barbaric.
National Publicity Secretary of ACF, Muhammad Ibrahim made this known in a statement in Kaduna Tuesday.
Ibrahim said: “The northern part of Nigeria has witnessed and experienced too many bomb blasts in the last six years which have distorted the economic life of the region thereby undermining our socioeconomic development.
“The activities of the Boko Haram sect in the North is most unfortunate as innocent people have continued to suffer unjustly for the sect’s perceived grievances.
“We, therefore, appeal to the perpetrators of these crimes to embrace the civilized way of addressing them. Killing innocent people through bomb blast and gun attacks is not a solution to the grievances of the perpetrators.
“ACF finds it agonizing and traumatic to always condemn such barbaric acts by insurgents and gunmen.
“The forum, therefore, calls on governments to take proactive measures that will halt the occurrence of these dastardly acts.
“Furthermore, governments should implement the recommendations on similar bomb blasts reports that were investigated and immediately prosecute the arrested suspects.”
