The Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) has asked the federal government to declare a national day of mourning over the killing of over 120 Nigerians in the bombing of Tudun Biri community in Igabi Local Government Area of Kaduna State.

The party in a statement on Wednesday by the National Publicity Secretary, Debo Ologunagba asked the Federal Government to immediately Institute a system-wide investigation to unearth what actually transpired.

The PDP also condoled with the government and people of Kaduna State, particularly the Tudun Biri Community and urges the Federal Government to take necessary steps to compensate the families of the dead as well as provide urgent medical attention to the wounded.

The opposition party said the fact that the area was bombed twice raised serious concern and questions which border on intelligence gathering, information processing, synergy, command and operation control coordination in the security system.
