Osun State governor, Ogbeni Rauf Aregbesola, has decried Monday’s bomb blast at Sabon-Gari area of Kano which he described as heartless, inhuman and barbaric.
Aregbesola who urged security agents and the Federal Government to do more to ensure the safety of lives and property of Nigerians and foreigners in the country, said the mindless killing of defenceless citizens represented an act against humanity and God.
In a statement by his Director of Bureau of Communications and Strategy Mr Semiu Okanlawon, Aregbesola said under no reason whatsoever should anyone or group take the lives of fellow human beings.
“It saddens when these barbaric and heartless people are described as fighting in the cause of any religion. Islam doesn’t support suicide bombing, Islam is a religion of peace. Islam does not encourage compulsion in religion”, he said.
The governor then charged security agencies and the Federal Government to rise up to the responsibilities of protecting lives and property of its citizens, adding that the destruction of lives and property and the failure of government apparatus are alarming.
