At least 125 People killed due to Terrorist group, Boko Haram, bombing; President Jonathan release statement

At least 125 people were killed and 25 others seriously injured due to the bomb explosions in Kano State, Nigeria on friday, January 20, 2012.
A reliable source with a security agency involved with the response to the violent attacks stated, “The death toll was high. Officially, we have exhausted about 125 bags where we put the remains of the victims of the blast. Among the dead were two Immigration Officers. We have all the bodies in the two hospitals.
“We could not mop up last night because of the grave security situation. But as early as 5am on Saturday, we started the exercise. The mopping involved all aid agencies like the JNI, Red Cross, and Kano State Emergency Management Agency”
This is a transcript of the statement released from the Office of the President of Nigeria,
“President Goodluck Jonathan has expressed his condolences to all victims, including the management and staff of Channels Television, following the multiple bomb blasts and acts of violence which rocked the city of Kano on Friday, in which seven persons were confirmed dead and others wounded. Among the seven persons killed in the incident was a reporter with Channels Television in Kano, Mr Enenche Akogwu. Mr Akogwu was reportedly shot and killed while on duty during the exchange of fire between men and officers of the Nigeria Police and the terrorists at the Farm Centre Police Station, Kano.

President Jonathan who said he was greatly saddened by the incident which led to the loss of lives of innocent Nigerians, pledged to get to the root of the incident while assuring the management and staff of Channels Television which lost its Kano-based correspondent and indeed all Nigerians, that those behind these acts of terrorism would be made to face the full wrath of the law.

He commended the media as the Fourth Estate of the Realm for living up to its constitutional and noble responsibility in these critical times and assured all journalists that “the Federal Government will continue to partner with the media in a robust and patriotic manner in the drive to build, institute and sustain the administration’s transformational values and programmes for our dear country and indeed Nigerians.”

The President further commended the media for its historic role in protecting constitutional democracy and the rule of Law in Nigeria and promised to ensure that those who lost their lives in the Kano incident do not die in vain as those behind the acts of violence will be apprehended and speedily dealt with in accordance with the Laws of the land.

The President said: “It is with a heart full of sadness and pain that I convey my condolences on behalf of the Federal Government of Nigeria to the families, friends, associates and relatives of all those who lost their lives in the acts of violence in Kano on Friday. These are honest and patriotic Nigerians who were brutally and recklessly cut down by agents of terror. As a responsible Government, we will not fold our hands and watch enemies of democracy, for that is what these mindless killers are, perpetrate unprecedented evil in our land. I want to re-assure Nigerians, the international Community, and members of the fourth estate of the realm, who lost one of their colleagues, a reporter with Channels Television, that all those involved in that dastardly act would be made to face the full wrath of the law.”

  1. A STRONG PRE-TRIED WAY To Stop The Military Attacks On Nigeria INSTANTLY!!!

    THE DECEIVED AND MANIPULATED PEOPLES OF NIGERIA,
    WHILE HERE THERE ARE NUMEROUS COMMENTATORS THAT ARE CLEARLY HONEST AND FAIR AND COMMUNITY-RESPECTING, AMONG THE PEOPLE WHO ARE ‘KEY-BOARD-RESPONDING’ TO THE MAIN TITLES OF THE WEBSITE OR TO EACH OTHER, THERE ARE ALSO A FEW PERSONS WHOSE INFUSIONS ARE BLUNTLY MISLEADING AND BIASED AND SOCIETY-ENDANGERING. Of such kind of Dangerous and Ambushing “Hiddenly-Assigned” web-writers, you can find examples who would pretend they are Nigerian-Based, or African-Based, but in reality they are writing to you from a Military/Intelligence Bureau, West of the Atlantic Ocean!!! AND THE CHIEFS OVER THERE ALWAYS START TO REACT, as soon as You get ‘Web-Noticed’, in a way that shows that you are THREATENINGLY starting to : SUSPECT-ABOUT AND RE-THINK THE REALITY OF THE ‘BREAKING’ WRECKY-HAVOCKY INCIDENTS, AND REVISE AND DISBELIEVE THE ACCOMPANYING PRE-WORDED INTERNATIONAL-MEDIA NONSENSE, AND THEN EVALUATE AND ANALYZE THE ‘DIFFERING’ PURE SOLID FACTS THAT WERE MEDIA-OMITTED OR NEGLECTED. The West of the Atlantic Ocean Chiefs hostile reactions can range from: Trying to pull and bring back you, or at least who read you, to their Mean-Liars-World again, ‘Writingly’, .. And till to: Hunting and tracking you down in your homeland country, to force matters with you ‘Physically’!!!
    The urgency of these ‘OVER-CONCERNED’ reactions, for them, comes from the fact that they Cannot Afford to be caught RED-HANDED WITH THE BLOOD OF THE INNOCENT PEOPLE, on a ‘plans-hampering’ wide scale. They can afford to be caught on a ‘plans-passing’ narrow scale, only.
    For example, when the “Globalist Pentagon-War-Lords” were suddened and surprized by the Pakistani Combined Popular/Official Concentrated Spotlighting and Elevated Denouncing on the 2-hour USAF air-raid on Pakistani Soldiers, the U.S. Department-Of-Defense Killers had to stop killing the Pakistani Soldiers and Civilians alike, for a good while. The Pakistanis continued to play it well, and tied them-up even more, when they rejected to ‘RESUME’ and ‘REJOIN’ New-World-Order activities with the United States Of America, in a held-later German-based conference !!!
    Similarly, when the Indonesians, GOVERNMENTALLY AND POPULARLY, chose to bravely Media-Expose the Secret U. S. A. Marines Criminal Activities of Infecting the Indonesian Peoples with Swine-Flu Viruses, and Injecting them with the Related Poisonous Alleged-Vaccines, .. the Un-Expecting and Stunned “Depopulating-Doers” [=Killers] of the Pentagon were faced with a Single Sponteneous Reaction to do, And that was to stop the Secret Mass-Killings, at once.
    So, there seems to be NO-ESCAPE for the Nigerians now from resorting to EXPOSING THE ACTUAL MASS-KILLING-DOERS, The Pentagon-City Dwellers, …etc., Who Surely Have The Only Kind And Level Of Weapons That Can Efficiently And Swiftly Smash And Pulverize The Nigerian Cities Like That.

  2. THE DECEIVED AND MANIPULATED PEOPLES OF NIGERIA,
    JUST LOOK CLOSELY AND EXAMINE CAREFULLY THE PHOTOGRAPHS AND VIDEOS OF THE BOMB EXPLOSIONS AT MADALA, MAIDUGURI, DAMATURU, JOS, GADAKA, AND KANO, AND ANSWER THIS SIMPLE QUESTION TO YOURSELVES : WHY ALMOST EVERY BUILDING AND EVERY CAR HAD BEEN HIT “FROM ABOVE”, AND NOT “FROM SIDEWAYS” ?!?! PLEASE KNOW THAT IN THIS “GLOBE”, AND SINCE YEARS AGO, THERE ARE THINGS CALLED SATELLITE-GUIDED “U.A.V. DRONES” THAT CAN RELEASE “SMART BOMBS” WHICH CAN BE PROGRAMMED TO EXPLODE BEFORE TOUCHING, AND YARDS ABOVE, GROUND LEVELS. FURTHERMORE : HOW CAN AN ALLEGED “SUICIDE-BOMBER” EASILY WEAR AND WANDER ABOUT UNNOTICED WITH 60 TO 80 KILOS OF EXPLOSIVES ON HIS BODY ?!?! ALSO : HOW CAN THE ALLEGED “THIRD WORLD ‘BOKO’ INSURGENTS” SURPASS AND OUTCLASS PROFESSIONAL FIGHTERS OF AMERICAN S.W.A.T. AND BLACKWATER, TOGETHER ?!?!
