CURFEW NOW IN KADUNA
Enemies of peace have visited us with their ungodly venom of wanton destruction of human lives. This blast, coming in the Holy Month of Ramadan, is a clear indication that those behind the act have no iota of fear of God as they have none for the sanctity of human life
July 23, 2014 – Two bomb explosions rocked Kaduna on Wednesday killing scores of people. Eye Witnesses say the bomb was concealed in a red Volkswagen Golf car and targeted the convoy of a prominent Islamic cleric, Sheikh Dahiru Bauchi who is said to have escaped unhurt.
At least 25 bodies have so far been recovered from the scene of the attack.
However another account said the bomb targeted hundreds of Muslims gathered at the Murtala Square for Ramadan Tafsir under the leadership of Sheikh Bauchi in Kaduna.
We gathered that cleric was targeted for criticizing Boko Haram for carrying out series of deadly attacks in the North.
A second explosion however hit Alkali Road, Kaduna, barely two hours after the first attack killing scores of people. Sources say the bomb was also concealed in Volkswagen car and that blood and human flesh now litter the surrounding just as police have condoned-off the scene.
Meanwhile, the Kaduna State Governor, Ramalan Yero, has declared a 24-hour curfew in Kaduna after condemning the attack, describing the acts as the height of ‘cowardice’ by those bent on creating tension in the state.
Chief Press Secretary to Governor Yaro, Ahmed Maiyaki, quoted the governor as blaming the explosions on ‘agents of darkness’ bent on soaking the land with the blood of the innocent.
“Enemies of peace have visited us with their ungodly venom of wanton destruction of human lives. This blast, coming in the Holy Month of Ramadan, is a clear indication that those behind the act have no iota of fear of God as they have none for the sanctity of human life.”
“The time has come for us to eschew all our differences and confront these brazen attacks as a united people. Those behind these attacks have no regards for whatever diversity as their victims cut across all ethnic and religious divides. It is a responsibility on all of us to unite against this common enemy”, he said.
