GOV. KASHIM SHETTIMA OF BORNO, SPEAKING WITH OF ONE THE YET TO BEDISCHARGED VICTIMS OF THE JANUARY 14, MAIDUGURI BOMB BLAST AT THE UNIVERSITY OF MAIDUGURI TEACHING HOSPITAL WHEN THE GOVERNOR UNDERTOOK A SECOND VISIT ON WEDNESDAY (22/1/14) TO REASSESS THE STATE OF THE VICTIMS.

The House of Representatives on Wednesday called on the Office of the National Security Adviser and the Service Chiefs to launch investigations into the recent bomb attack which claimed over 43 lives in Maiduguri, the Borno State capital more than a week ago.

In a resolution passed on Wednesday, the House directed the Service Chiefs to “set up a committee to investigate the causes of the wanton destruction of lives and properties”.

The resolution was adopted following a motion moved by a member from Borno State, Mr. Kaka Kyari-Gujbawu.

The lawmaker commended members of the ‘Civilian’ Joint Task Force for tracking down the suspected bomber after the killings.

Describing the attack as callous, Rep. Kyari-Gujbawu said it shattered the nine-month peace enjoyed in the state due to a reduction in the activities of terrorist groups.

“The attack consumed about 50 innocent souls and inflicted mortal injury to nearly 100 people,” he said.

Information Nigeria reports that after a lull in bombing activities in Maiduguri, a car bomb planted by suspected members of the Boko Haram sect went off near a market in the troubled Northeastern state last week Tuesday, killing scores and injuring several others.
