The Nigeria Labour Congress, NLC, has called on security agencies
to beam a searchlight on some militant groups in the Niger Delta
region following the recent spate of bomb attacks believed to have
been perpetuated by Boko haram insurgents in Abuja.
The President of the NLC, Ayuba Wabba stated this while adding that the
ongoing investigation should not be narrowed down to the Islamic
insurgents, Boko haram.
He said the latest attacks were particularly dangerous as they were
carried out at night and in locations where late purchases were made.
Several bomb blasts on Friday night ripped through Nyanya and Kuje, a
town in the Federal Capital Territory, FCT, Abuja including one target
hit twice before by Boko haram, after separate strikes in the N/East that
killed at least 21.
The blasts left scores dead and severely injured with several reactions
pouring in ever since.
In reaction, NLC alleged that some groups in the oil-rich region had
planned to resume violent attacks against Nigerians and the Nigerian
The NLC President said, “One of the locations, Kuje is on the route to
our major international airport. The attacks may have been a devious
façade to rubbish the victories of our national army and other security
agencies in the battle to rid our country of terrorism and all its residues
before the global community.
“They want the world to believe our country is not safe.
“For us at the Nigeria Labour Congress, we believe these latest attacks
should not weaken the morale of the forces involved in the battle against
terrorism in our country, rather it should reinvigorate their fighting
spirits and be seen by government as a challenge to arm our forces with
more sophisticated and superior weapons both for intelligence gathering
and combat.
“The freedom of those who sponsor deadly violence put the entire
country on timed bombs that can explode at will. No matter how highly
placed, whoever has been indicted should immediately be apprehended
and reinvestigated now.”

Amnesty International, AI, in a recent report, stated that over 1,600
persons have been killed by insurgents since January.
