Speaker of the House of Representatives, Rt. Hon. Yakubu Dogara has condemned the bomb attack at the University of Maiduguri which left three people, including a professor of Veterinary medicine, Professor Aliyu Usman Mani, dead.
Describing the sad incident, which occurred at a mosque in the university’s staff quarters during today’s early morning prayers, as the height of wickedness, barbarism, callousness and ungodliness, the Speaker lamented that in spite of the military feat which dislodged the terrorists from their enclave, the insurgents could still find the audacity to carry out such a dastardly act on the University campus.
Noting the latest bomb attack as yet another evil dimension taken by the terrorists, the Speaker urged the Nigerian security operatives not to be deterred by the new tactics of the terrorists but to step up their operations as to consolidate on the gains so far made in the fight against terrorism.
