- The attack on the Kuje Custodial Centre and President Muhammadu Buhari has been condemned by the opposition
- The PDP said that the ruling APC should be held responsible for the incessant attack by terrorists across the country recently
- According to the party, the National Assembly should also immediately summon the security chiefs for a thorough investigation
The Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) has condemned in the strongest possible term, the spate of insecurity and the audacity with which terrorists ravage the country unchallenged under the administration of the All Progressives Congress (APC).
The opposition in a statement signed by its national publicity secretary, Debo Ologunagba warned that the terrorist attack on the advance convoy of President Muhammadu Buhari in Katsina state as well as the Correctional Facility in Abuja underscore the collapse of the nation's security command.
Ologunagba also submitted that the escalated spate of terrorism across the country has heightened apprehensions of complicity by the APC to open up Nigeria to more terrorist attacks with the view to stall the 2023 general elections.
