Former Vice President Atiku Abubakar has expressed deep sadness at the bombing of the Yola IDP Camp in which several lives were lost and many persons maimed.
In a press statement released by his Media Office in Abuja on Friday, 11 September, the former Vice President said that the bombing could only have been planned and executed by persons with hearts of evil.
Atiku said it was pathetic for these agents of evil to target the thousands of already traumatised and vulnerable people mainly from Borno and Yobe who were seeking refuge in the Camp.
“Many people I know were working as volunteers in the camp, including staff and students of AUN, who are being nurtured and mentored in the best tradition of service to humanity by giving of their time, energy and at times resources to their fellow human beings,” the Turaki Adamawa said.
“Today’s attack is an attempt to break the spirits of the people who came to seek refuge. The perpetrators will know no peace.
“We refuse to be broken. We will win the war against terrorism. We shall overcome!”
