By  Daniel Gumm

WARRI—A member of the House of Representatives, Mr. Daniel Reyenieju, has decsribed the bomb
blasts which occurred Monday at the venue of the Post-Anmesty Dialogue in the Delta State Government House Annex in Warri as not only unfortunate, but also a wicked and cowardly act of no mean proportion.

Speaking to Vanguard from Markudi, Reyenieju, who represents Warri Federal Constituency in the House of Representatives, said those behind the dastardly act must understand that they could hardly stop the inexorable movement towards peace, adding  that their act “is most shameful and unfortunate.”

The lawmaker wondered what the act was intended to achieve, given the fact that the dialogue was intended to brainstorm and proffer solution to the realities which the post-amnesty period had thrown up. He described the perpetrators as mindless and criminal individuals  bent on destroying the peace Delta State dovernment had achieved.

He appealed to the authorities of Vanguard Newspapers not to be discouraged by the isolated act and called on all the law enforcement agents to leave no stone unturned to fish out the criminals.

In his reaction to the incident, the National President of Itsekiri National Youths Council, INYC, Mr. David Tonwe, described the act as most barbaric, saying the Itsekiri youths group “is most disturbed by this criminal act. He appealed to the police authorities to do everything possible to fish out the criminals.
