Atiku Laments Many Miscalculated Killings Of Innocent Nigerians By Soldiers

Former Vice President Atiku Abubakar, has lamented what he described as too many cases of miscalculated air strikes by the Nigerian armed personnel leading to unfortunate death of innocent Nigerians.
Atiku was reacting to Sunday’s bombing over about 100 villagers at the Tudun Biri Village, Kaduna who were said to be marking the year’s Maulud event.
The former vice president said that he was grieved by the news of the drone airstrike that killed dozens of people and left scores of others with various degrees of injury in the Tudun Biri community in Igabi Local Government Area of Kaduna State.
“Ironically, the victims of this unfortunate incident were celebrating the Maulud anniversary.
“The incidence of miscalculated air strikes is assuming a worrisome dimension in the country.”
He stressed the need for the country to develop counterinsurgency strategies that will insulate the civilian population from tragic incidents of this nature.
“I call on the authorities to launch a thorough investigation into this tragedy to avert future occurrences.
“Meanwhile, no resource should be spared in medical attention to the injured and assistance to the families of the dead. I pray that the Almighty Allah comforts the bereaved families and grants the dead eternal peace.”
The Nigerian Army had admitted yesterday, December 4, that its operatives mistakenly bombed the worshippers. Reported has it that President Bola Tinubu had ordered an investigation into the miscalculated bombing.
