Senate President David Mark on Wednesday condemned the killing of 48 students in a suicide bomb attack at government secondary school in Potiskum, Yobe State on Monday.
In a speech, the senate president said Boko Haram has declared war on Nigeria and appealed to the insurgents to desist from attacking innocent citizens.
“Clearly, Boko Haram has declared war on this country and we must fight with all our efforts. We cannot allow this to continue any longer”, Mr. Mark said.
He sympathized with the people and government of Yobe state and all the school children in Nigeria.
After his speech, the senate observed a moment of silence in memory of the slain students.
