Senate President, Dr. Abubakar Bukola Saraki, has condemned Friday night’s bomb explosions in the satellite towns of the Federal Capital Territory (FCT), Kuje and Nyanya, while calling on security agencies to step up intelligence gathering activities.

Saraki in a statement by his Media Office in Abuja, urged Nigerians not to panic, as the renewed attacks are signs that the days of Boko Haram are numbered.

He commended the security agencies for their quick response to the incidents in Nyanya and Kuje, especially the prompt evacuation of both the dead and injured to medical facilities where they are receiving needed for medical attention.

The Senate President however urged the security agencies to leave no stone unturned in ensuring that the peace that has returned to the FCT and its environs is not only sustained but improved upon.

“To maintain peace, we need to step up the intelligence gathering machinery and get ordinary people to give useful information on suspicious movements by individuals, groups or even unexplainable location of objects and structures. This war against insurgency is one that all of us must co-operate with and support the military,” Saraki stated.

He also called on Nigerians not to relent in their prayers and making critical intelligence available to security forces, to aid them in their final onslaught against insurgency in the North-East and other affected parts of the country.

The Senate President commiserated with the families of victims of the explosions and wished those hospitalised speedy recovery.

“We are definitely seeing the last days of these misguided elements. The resort to soft targets as their new mode of attack is a clear indication that there is tremendous heat on the insurgents from our gallant security forces who have vowed to vanquish these outlaws within the shortest possible time,” he stated.
