The Nigerian Labour Congress (NLC) has condemned the Wednesday bomb blast at Emab plaza in the heart of Abuja which left 24 persons dead and several others injured, calling it a “desperate act by evil-minded persons to kill the robust Nigerian spirit by instilling fear in the citizenry”.
A statement signed by the Acting General Secretary of the Congress, Mister Chris Uyot says the bomb blast is a cowardly act which must be condemned by all well-meaning Nigerians.
The statement adds that the “perpetrators of the blast are wicked souls and a tiny minority do not represent the Nigerian spirit”.
The congress therefore called for the judicious use of the resources allocated for fighting terror just as it advised Nigerians to be more vigilant by a way of taking basic deterrent measures capable of delaying or preventing terrorists from striking at will.
The congress further advised security agents especially the ones at road check points to resist the temptation of creating vulnerable situations for terrorists to strike by speedily screening vehicles in order to avoid build-ups.
