President condemns terrorist attacks at Kano College and Potiskum
President Goodluck Ebele Jonathan deplores the continuing terrorist assault on Kano and the heinous bombing of the Aminu Kano College of Islamic and Legal Studies today.
He similarly deplores the attacks on two mosques in Potiskum, Yobe State yesterday.
President Jonathan condemns the repeated targeting of worshippers, and innocent students who are the nation’s future by depraved terrorists.
He believes that the callous attacks on soft targets fully affirm that the terrorists are nothing but bloodthirsty adherents of a warped and retrogressive ideology.
No amount of intimidation and violence would stampede the government into abandoning its goal of giving education a new lease of life and opening up access to all young Nigerians who wish to improve themselves.
President Jonathan has therefore directed the Armed Forces, Police and other national security agencies to further enhance security around educational facilities in states prone to terrorist attacks.
