Office of the Deputy President of Senate, Senator Ike Ekweremadu issued the following statement a few moments ago. In this media release, Sen.Ekweremadu condemns the bomb attacks on Thisday and Sun Offices in Abuja and Kaduna which occured earlier today.
Ekweremadu who described the attack as a grievous affront on the Nigerian people urged Nigerians to unite in their resistance against all acts of terror.
He said: “The Nigerian media industry has distinguished itself in not only fighting for and entrenching the current democratic dispensation, even at very high sacrifices, but has as well stood out as a bastion of our unity and the moral voice of our society.
“An attack on the media is therefore an attack on the very fabric of the conscience of our society and the fulcrum of our unity, democracy, and good governance which every Nigerian must stand up against”
The Deputy President of Senate who added that the attack was “dastardly, anti-cultural, and anti-Nigeria”, urged the media not to be cowed, but continue speak up against all acts of terrorism as Nigerians were in solidarity with them.
“My heart goes out to the affected persons and media houses”, he said.
