Mubi bombing: Atiku condemns Attack, Says terrorists are enemies of civilisation


Former Vice President Atiku Abubakar has condemned the latest suicide attack on a Mosque in Mubi, Adamawa State, when Muslim worshippers were performing their afternoon (Zuhr) prayers on Tuesday.

Reacting to the incident in a statement in Abuja on Wednesday, Atiku noted that the killing of innocent people is senseless, thoughtless, purposeless, incomprehensible and, above all, egregiously wicked and ungodly.

He said his heart and sympathies go to the families of the victims as Boko Haram has made the killing of innocent people a way of life, pursuing a nebulous cause that has nothing to do with Islam in whose name they commit atrocities against humanity.

Describing terrorists as enemies of civilisation who have no slightest regard for the sanctity of life, the former Vice President said he was saddened by the fact that the people in the Northeast are living under constant threats of death and mortal fear.

According to him, “these communities are now captives of fear who have to look over their shoulders as they leave their homes for work, school or for the places of worship.”

Atiku called for increased vigilance and human intelligence, adding that the local people should be given support on how to spot threats and how best to stop these heinous acts from occurring.
