MURIC CONDEMNS BOMB BLAST IN ABUJA POLICE HQ
The Nigeria Police headquarters was hit by a powerful bomb explosion today. Several cars were reportedly destroyed. Reports of human casualties are yet to be confirmed.
The Muslim Rights Concern (MURIC) is saddened by this grave development. Though no group has claimed responsibility for this gruesome attack, it is nonetheless the handiwork of disgruntled elements who have one or two grudges against the police.
MURIC asserts that life is sacred and nobody except Allah has the right to take the life of another fellow homo sapien. It is clear that this attack was aimed at the heart of the police force thereby implying a desire for vengeance or a demonstration of dissatisfaction with certain operations of the Nigerian police. We strongly condemn this violence outburst in its entirety. It is high time Nigerians realized that violence cannot solve the nation's problems. We call upon Nigerians to embrace dialogue as the ultimate panacea for resoving differences. Dialogue builds. Violence destroys.
MURIC urges the security agencies to fish out the culprits of this barbaric act. We appeal to the Federal Government to immediately engage all groups and different shades of opinions in dialogue. We advise the youth to shun violent propensities.
