Labour leaders urge FG to tackle menace of insecurity

Labour leaders have decried the spate of bombing in parts of the country on Christmas Day.

They also urged the government to fish out the perpetrators.

Mr Adetunji Adesunkanmi, the President, Senior Staff Association of Communications, Transport and Corporations, condemned the bomb blasts, saying that they were regrettable.

“It is a day when people are supposed to be happy but this group of people, who do not have respect for life, have turned the people’s happiness to sadness and grief,’’ he said.

Mr Martins Adeyanju, the General Secretary, Railway Workers’ Union of Nigeria, condemned the bomb attacks on innocent worshippers.

Adeyanju warned that if nothing was done to check the mounting menace of the “Boko Haram’’ group, the country would end up in a serious crisis.

He urged the Federal Government to fight the state of insecurity with determination and vigour.

However, retired Maj.-Gen. Leo Ajiborisha advised Christians not to be scared away from attending church services because of the blast.

“The bomb blast was just to scare people, it has no religious undertone but some unscrupulous individuals are trying hard to disrupt our democracy. NAN
