President Muhammadu Buhari has condemned the bomb attack at Malkohi Internally Displaced Persons’ (IDP) camp in Yola, Adamawa, describing it as a heinous and cowardly act.

The president, who spoke through a statement issued on Friday in Abuja by his Senior Special Assistant on Media and Publicity, Mallam Garba Shehu, directed relevant authorities to take adequate measures to check future occurrence of such dastardly act.

He, particularly, ordered security agencies to tighten security measures in and around all IDP camps across the country to guard against the sort of incident that occurred at Malkohi IDP camp on Friday, which resulted in the loss of seven lives.

The President noted that the terrorists were bent on causing fear and panic among the populace by detonating bombs within soft spots where hapless citizens reside.


He, however, urged members of the public not to be deterred but rise in unison to root out whatever was left of the terrorists in their midst.

“We must not let the desperate and evil-minded criminals have any respite.

“There is now an urgent need for all to be vigilant by paying utmost attention to security issues at all levels – home, work, market, places of worship, schools, etc.

“To defeat terrorism, all hands round the clock is called for, and to feed the country’s security agents with vital information to preempt and prevent crimes so as to forestall further insurgent activities,’’ the President added.
