Abuja Explosions: Delegates Want Boko Haram Financiers Prosecuted

Delegates at the ongoing national conference yesterday, condemned in strong terms, bomb explosions at Nyanya bus terminal in Abuja, the nation’s capital, by members of the Boko Haram sect in which about 100 people were feared dead and several others injured.

The delegates, who observed one minute silence for the victims, also condemned past and similar mayhem in other parts of the country. They therefore called on the Federal Government and stakeholders to, as a matter of urgency, implement all actionable recommendations made to it by various committees such as the Gaji Galtimari, Kabiru T. Turaki and Borno/Yobe Elders among others, which recommended prosecution of some politicians found to be financing and empowering members of Boko Haram.

A bomb blast in Abuja yesterday morning which killed about 100 commuters at a motor park in Nyanyan was blamed on Islamist sect Boko Haram. The sect has been carrying out attacks in the country which has claimed thousands of lives.

The activities of the sect which had until yesterday been contained in the North eastern part of the country have become a great concern for Nigerians as more lives are continually being lost to attacks by the sect.
