BOMB EXPLOSIONS IN KADUNA
Multiple bomb explosions rocked the city of Kaduna today. Reports say the explosions occurred at the base of the 1st Mechanised Division near the town of Kawo and at the Air Force training base near Mando. A third explosion took place near a highway overpass. Although some injuries were reported, no deaths have been confirmed.
We of the Muslim Rights Concern (MURIC) are deeply pained by these ugly developments. No nation can rise in a state of confusion. Religion, which is supposed to bring people together in love and harmony is now being bastardised and misused to create fear and make blood flow.
MURIC unreservedly denounces this latest attack. We charge the Nigerian authorities to be more pragmatic in its handling of the crisis in the northern part of Nigeria. The option of dialogue remains the best in order to unravel the casus belli for this senseless carnage. A stich in time saves nine. The Federal Government should desist from dilly-dallying on the Boko Haram imbroglio.
