The Goodluck/Sambo Presidential Campaign Organisation has called for dispassionateÂ investigations of the October 1 bomb blasts which led to the death of 10 people andÂ injuries to over 30 other in Abuja.
In a press release issued this afternoon, the campaign group also said the investigationsÂ into the brain behind the bomb blasts should not be politicised especially with theÂ interrogation of Chief Raymond Dokpesi, the Director General of Ibrahim BabangidaÂ Campaign Organisation by the State Security Services.
The Goodluck/Sambo Campaign Organisation in the press release signed by Sully Abu, itsÂ director of media and publicity noted that the IBB group is already politicising the bombÂ blasts issue with its comments since the occurrence of the unfortunate event.
“Attempts are, of course, being made to politicise the issue following the arrest andÂ interrogation of the head of the Gen. Ibrahim Babangida Campaign Organisation, ChiefÂ Raymond Dokpesi.
“This is coming fast on the heels of the rather tasteless comment made by thatÂ organization which, rather than commiserate with Nigerians, particularly families of theÂ victims, claimed that their principal would be better placed to superintend nationalÂ security issues, a claim which flies in the face of the needless blood-letting during hisÂ time as military President.
“The security services are perfectly entitled, in the course of their investigation, toÂ invite anyone, no matter how highly placed for questioning in order to unravel anyÂ connection with the perpetrators of the bombing.
“No attempt must be made to obfuscate the investigation of a clear act of terrorism byÂ recourse to cheap, partisan politics.
The Campaign group however said draw up posers which must be unravelled by the securityÂ agencies which it said will help reveal those behind the independence day bomb blasts.
” For instance, what was the connection between the bombing suspects and some highlyÂ placed persons as to lead to the exchange of text messages? The truth will come out.
