President Goodluck Ebele Jonathan Sunday condemned Sunday's suicide bomb attack on a Catholic Church in Kaduna.
Extremely saddened by the dastardly act, the President described the explosion, as "barbaric, cruel and uncalled for."
President Jonathan, in a statement signed by his spokesperson, Dr Reuben Abati, noted that the apparent objective of the criminal and unpatriotic elements and forces behind the attack is to set back the progress the Administration has made in the fight against terrorism in the country.
"It is obvious that these people do not mean well for Nigeria and its unity and development," he said.
The President however, expressed confidence that the war against terrorism would become more unrelenting as the nation would never give in to the forces of terror and retardation. He added that the persistence of messengers of evil will not prevail over the will of the government and the people to secure peace and safety.
