The Arewa Consultative Forum (ACF) has described yesterday’s tripple bombing of the Central Mosque near the Emir’s Palace in Kano City, North-West Nigeria, aimed at Muslim worshipers in the mosque that left many dead and scores of others injured as wicked, callous and barbaric.

A statement by ACF National Publicity Secretary, Muhammad Ibrahim (Danmasanin Biu), expressed shock and disbelief over the three bomb explosions.

ACF described the recent bomb explosions in Yola, Maiduguri, Azare, Kontagora and many other towns in the North coupled with the daily killing of innocent people by insurgents is very disturbing and worrisome.

The forum said: “This insecurity situation that has engulfed the North is a clear manifestation of Federal Government’s inability to protect the people as intelligence and equipment required to contain the situation appears lacking.

“ACF urges the people of Kano in particular to exercise some restraint, remain calm and avoid taking the law into their hands or blame innocent people that have lived with them peacefully.

“We equally call upon the people to unite and protect themselves through intelligence sharing with security agencies and community leaders.

“ACF appeals to the Kano State Government and other state governments where bomb explosions occurred in the last one week to provide free medical treatment to the injured. It also extends its heartfelt condolences to the bereaved families, the Emir of Kano Alhaji Muhammadu Sanusi 11, the people and Government of Kano State over this unfortunate incident.”

The forum called on the Federal Government to as a matter of urgency deploy all its security apparatus to the areas bedeviled by insurgency in order to bring an end to the menace.
