Fasehun Condemns Abuja Bomb Attacks


The president and founder of the Oodua Peoples Congress, OPC, Dr. Frederick Fasehun has  described the bomb blasts that rocked the Federal Capital Territory, Abuja, as very  unfortunate and a cowardly act, especially on a day every Nigerian remembers as a day of  liberty.

Speaking exclusively with P.M.NEWS, Dr. Fasehun stated that it is unfortunate that a  jubilation that ought to have been pervasive ended up as a tragedy for some families.

He said: “It is unfortunate because countries that have adopted the bombing method  invariably ended up unable to discuss ways to work out peace; and if the bombers think it  is a way of calling government’s attention to the political crisis on ground, I want to  say the government of recent has not been that deaf to require a bark to respond to  issues”.

On who planted the bomb, Fasehun said its too early to point accusing fingers and he is  not sure whether the supposed responsibility by MEND was genuine but stated that everyone  should be careful and wait for the report of the investigation.

He, however, absolved General Ibrahim Babangida and Chief Raymond Dokpesi of any  complicity in the bombing. “IBB has displayed patriotism at various levels of Nigeria’s  history and I don’t think he was involved like some rumour had spread, because I don’t  believe he can be that unpatriotic and likewise, Dr. Raymond Dokpesi is among the top  most ten Nigerian patriots of all time and I don’t think he will do anything to harm  Nigeria, but like I said, let us wait for the report of the security operatives,” he  said.
