Atiku outraged over bombing, deaths in Potiskum school


Former Vice President Atiku Abubakar has expressed outrage over the

bombing of the Government Technical Science College, Potiskum by a yet

unidentified suicide bomber dressed as a student of the school.

The former Vice President said in a statement by his media office in Abuja

on Monday that the latest bombing which needlessly claimed the lives of 47

young and promising Nigerian school children is one too many and once

again underscores the need for the government at all levels including our

elders and opinion leaders to find a permanent solution to the problem of

insurgency which has ravaged our country for the past five years.

Atiku noted that the tragic incident in Potiskum is not the first time in

Yobe State and indeed in the troubled North-East region that innocent

young people are subjected to violence and untimely death for the simple

reason that they want an education.
“One expects that knowing the anti-education mind-set of the perpetrators

of these heinous crimes, the relevant authorities should have done their

bit to ensure that at least, our educational institutions are provided

with additional security,” Atiku said.
Atiku Abubakar appealed to the perpetrators of this crime and similar ones

in the past to have a rethink and refrain from taking life which none of

us can create.
He expressed his condolences to the government and people of Yobe State,

the management, staff and students of Government Technical Science

College, Potiskum, the parents and guardians of the affected students and

all those who may have been adversely affected by the senseless murder of

these innocent students.
