Abuja — The immediate past Minister of Defence, Dr. Bello Haliru Mohammed, has condemned Sunday's twin suicide bombings at the St. Andrew's Military Protestant Church, Jaji Military Cantonment while also commiserating with the victims.

Bello in a statement signed by his Special Assistant (Media) Mr. Emeka Nwankpa, described the attacks on innocent worshippers as sad, wicked, dastardly and a crime against humanity.

The former defence minister expressed deep sympathy to families of the victims, the Catholic Church and the authorities of the Armed Forces Command and Staff College (AFCSC), Jaji for the loss of precious lives in the blasts.
