The African Action Congress (AAC) has condemned the recent bombing of innocent villagers in Igabi LGA, Kaduna State, by the Army, which has claimed over 100 lives with many severely injured.
Haruna Garba Magashi, the party’s Vice Presidential Candidate in the 2023 election, in a statement at the weekend, said it was beyond human imagination that the Army would kill fellow citizens in such a large number by ‘mistake.’
Such errors, it said, do not happen in sane countries, even as it called for urgent action against the culprits of the heinous act, describing it as an act of terrorism against the Nigerian people.
The AAC statement reads: “Once again, the country has been thrown into wanton darkness by those who are supposed to provide light.
“We at the African Action Congress (AAC) have received with dismay the unfortunate incident where the Nigerian Army dropped bombs on innocent villagers in Igabi LGA, Kaduna State which has led to the death of over 100 people with many others severely injured.
“It is beyond human imagination that the Army will kill fellow citizens in such large numbers on a pretext of ‘mistake,’ this doesn’t happen in sane countries.
“This ‘mistake’ as a result of poor intelligence gathering, lack of tact and strategy remains condemned and those involved must be fished out and punished, as this is not the first time fatal ‘errors’ like this are committed. This is an act of terrorism against the Nigerian people.
“We also want to state that this action of the Nigeria Army shows the failure and unpreparedness of the All Progressives Congress (APC) government to govern this country…
“It is also important that we seize this unfortunate situation to introspect as a people and a government.
“The years of neglecting the masses are coming back to haunt us.
“Had the rulers of Nigeria provided good governance, good hospitals, quality education, adequate food security, there wouldn’t be any need for bombs, let alone throwing bombs on innocent civilians.
“We strongly condemn this unfortunate incident and call for prompt action.
“Days of national mourning (to show the slightest sympathy) should be declared as well as an independent investigation into the incident.
“The families of the victims should be paid full compensation as stipulated by the Terrorism Prevention and Prohibition Act.
“Those injured must be given the best treatment immediately.
“The Nigerian people also deserve an apology and the assurance from the Nigerian Defence Headquarters that this will not happen again.”
