The Commandant of the Command and Staff College, Air Vice Marshal Abdullahi Kureh, condemned the situation where “people who went to pray to God to give us peace were attacked by another group”, adding that security had been tightened to forestall another attack

Reports also has it that an Airforce commander, Air Commodore Alechenu Ekagbo, director of the Air wing of the college might have been affected by the explosion. The officer whose residence is just about 15 metres away from the scene of explosion is said to be in a critical condition at the 44 Army reference hospital, Kaduna.

In a statement by its National Publicity Secretary, Anthony Sani, in Kaduna, the ACF said: “All those who take delight in taking the lives of innocent people, as their own way of addressing their concerns, should know they are chasing shadow.

“That is why they should lay down their arms and embrace dialogue as the only viable option to addressing their concerns towards peaceful coexistence.

“One way they can achieve this is to lay down their arms, approach their chosen Saudi authority to play some roles in any constructive engagement between them and the Nigerian government.

“If Saudi Arabia accepts to play any role, they would naturally link up with the Nigerian authority. Our heart goes to those who lost loved ones and those who got wounded by the attack. May God grant them the fortitude to bear the irreparable losses and the means to replace losses many fold.”
