Jos: Bombing alien to our culture, says CPP

By Chris Ochayi
The Citizens Popular Party, CPP, has said that failure by the Federal and Plateau State governments to act on recommendations of  previous probe panels was responsible for the reccurring civil disturbances in Jos, which had resulted in loss of lives of several innocent Nigerians and wanton destruction of property in the state.

Describing the eve of Christmas multiple bomb explosions in the hitherto peaceful city, which killed over 80 people, and led to the hospitalisation of over 100 victims, the party challenged President Goodluck Jonathan to act fast and fish out  perpetrators of the dastardly act.

National Chairman of CPP, Barrister Maxi Okwu, while fuming over the incidents in a statement in Abuja, lamented that several Federal and State governments panels had been set up to investigate the remote and immediate causes of disturbances in Jos, adding that till date, no action had been taken on their recommendations which could have resolved the serial massacre of fellow Nigerians.

According to him, “the CPP strongly condemns the Christmas eve bomb blasts in Jos, Plateau State capital, in which many people were killed and wounded”.
