The  Permanent Secretary, Federal Capital Territory Administration (FCTA), John Chukwu, has condemned in strong terms, the twin bomb blasts in Kuje, and Nyanya, two satellite towns of Abuja,  which claimed many lives on Friday night.

Chukwu commiserated with the victims of the blasts, particularly those who lost their loved ones in the unfortunate and barbaric incident.

A statement by the FCT Deputy Director, Press, Mohammed Sule, on Saturday, said the permanent secretary also sympathised with the injured and described the wanton destruction of lives and property as “heartless and an act of wickedness on soft targets, which has no place in our history and tradition.”

He assured that the FCT Administration would continue to work closely with the security agencies to ensure the safety of lives and property of all the residents of the Federal Capital Territory.

Chukwu  prayed for the speedy recovery of the injured persons.

The permanent secretary appealed to the residents to be more vigilant and report any suspicious persons or movement to the law enforcement agents.

The FCT Police Commissioner, Wilson Inalegwu, who confirmed the twin blasts in Kuje and Nyanya, also condemned the unfortunate act.

Meanwhile, the National Emergency Management Agency has deployed its rescue teams in the evacuation of the victims to various hospitals in Abuja.

NEMA Press Officer, Ezekiel Manzo, said the agency had evacuated the bodies and the injured to hospitals.
