The President of the Senate, Dr Bukola Saraki, has commiserated with victims of the Adamawa bomb explosion.
Saraki in a statement signed by his Special Adviser on Media and Publicity, Mr Yusuph Olaniyonu, on Saturday in Abuja condemned the incident.
Saraki expressed concern that the incident could occur in spite efforts by the Armed Forces to curb insurgency in the country.
He, however, assured Nigerians of Federal Government’s resolve to defeat the insurgents, adding that “evil continues to fight back, but we will not be deterred.’’
“The news of Friday bomb blast in Adamawa shook us with great pain and sadness.
“My heart cannot but cry out for the families and friends who lost their loved ones to terror and violence.
“As our men and women on the front line in the North-East continue to gallantly defend our freedom and root out the insurgents, this attack demonstrates that evil continues to fight back.
“Nigerians must be rest assured that this government will continue to do all that it takes to defeat and decimate the Boko Haram resistance that is left.
“The Nigerian legislature will continue to work and support the Executive to ensure that we end insurgency and restore normalcy to all parts of the North-East.
“I pray that the souls of the departed may experience peace and may all the injured recover speedily,’’ Saraki said.
The News Agency of Nigeria (NAN), recalls that the bomb occurred on Friday, at a local market in Madagali, about 276 kilometers from Yola the state capital. (NAN)
