According to the party, 'The massacre of these harmless students cannot be justified under any guise.

Indeed, the PDP is heart-broken and extremely devastated by this act of wickedness which can only be associated with the devil.

'The PDP bleeds inside as we mourn the slaughtering of these promising young ones.

Our hearts go out to the parents and families of these innocent students.

We share in their anguish, their pain and their despair and we earnestly pray that those behind this act must not escape judgement for spilling the blood of the innocent.

No man commits such wickedness and gets away with it.

' While urging Nigerians to unite against terrorism in the country, PDP said 'Nigerians must jettison all political partisanship and rally round President Goodluck Jonathan in his untiring efforts in tackling the problem of insecurity in the country.

' The party however commended President Jonathan for the measures so far applied in fighting insurgency in the country and urged the people to continue to pray for the nation and give support to the security forces, especially in the area of intelligence gathering.

The PDP also commiserated with the families of the slain students, the government and the people of Yobe State and prayed God to give them the fortitude to bear the loss.
