Suicide bombers resurged due to Tinubu’s govt. handling of anti-terror war – Atiku

Abubakar Atiku, former Nigeria’s vice president, says that suicide bombers have resurfaced due to the Bola Tinubu-led “government’s lacklustre posture to hold firmly on the frontline.”

TheCornet reports that your suicide bombers had detonated some explosives they were carrying, killing about 18 people and injuring several others in Gworza, Borno State.

Atiku added: “It is a sad development that the ugly incidents of terrorism are resurfacing and, indeed, metastasising in the North-East.

“The reported attack by suicide bombers at a wedding reception, funeral procession, and a hospital on Saturday stands condemned.

“It is unfortunate that much of the pushback that had been achieved against the Boko Haram terror sect are being cancelled, owing mainly to the government’s lacklustre posture to hold firmly on the frontline.

“It is thus important to call on the federal authorities to wake up to their responsibility and to make sure that the North-East does not slide back into a theatre of terrorism and extreme violence.

“My condolences go to the families of victims of these attacks, and it is my prayer that God grants a peaceful repose to the souls of the departed.”

Atiku lost to Tinubu in the 2023 of presidential race and he is likely to confront him again in 2027.
