Nigeria: JNI Condemns Jos, Biu Blasts

Kaduna — The Jama'atu Nasril Islam (JNI) has condemned Sunday's bomb blast in Jos, Plateau State and in Biu in Borno State, saying the fact that the incidents happened at a time the nation was mourning the death of many people in the Dana plane crash made it more barbaric.

A press statement by the Secretary General of JNI, Khalid Abubakar Aliyu, therefore called on the Plateau State government to arrest the perpetrators, particularly those that carried out the reprisal attacks.

It also said: "We call on the Federal Government to thoroughly investigate the case of a Customs Comptroller who is accused of supplying weapons to his tribesmen in Jos because he is one among many that have been causing havoc to the nation.

"At this moment of monumental mourning over the victims of Dana plane crash that occurred, the nation is still witnessing these barbaric incidences. May Allah the Most High continue to protect us and bring to book the perpetrators," the statement said.
