Former Vice President Atiku Abubakar has said the relentless bombings of worship places and other soft targets in the country must be halted else it may produce consequences beyond the control of anyone.

Reacting to Sunday's suicide bomb attacks at the Jaji Military Command in Kaduna, in a statement by his Media Office in Abuja, Atiku noted with sadness that the perpetrators and their sponsors were posing a threat to the unity of the country. He advised members of the community to expose suspicious elements among them for the good of society. Also yesterday, former defence minister Bello Haliru Mohammed, condemned the attack. He spoke in a statement by his media aide Emeka Nwankpa. He described the "attacks on innocent worshippers as sad, wicked and a crime against humanity." In his reaction, the Director General of the National Orientation Agency (NOA), Mike Omeri, condemned the attack in a statement in Abuja yesterday.
