Former Vice President Atiku Abubakar, on Tuesday, decried the incident of the drone airstrike that killed scores in Tudun Biri, Kaduna State.
Atiku in a statement on Tuesday declared: “I am grieved by the news of the drone airstrike that killed dozens of people and left scores of others with various degrees of injury in the Tudun Biri community in Igabi Local Government Area of Kaduna State. Ironically, the victims of this unfortunate incident were celebrating the Maulud anniversary.”
Atiku maintained: “The incidence of miscalculated air strikes is assuming a worrisome dimension in the country. We need to develop counterinsurgency strategies that will insulate the civilian population from tragic incidents of this nature.
“I call on the authorities to launch a thorough investigation into this tragedy to avert future occurrences.”
The bombing last Sunday by the Nigerian Army was said to have killed 85 persons, leaving many others injured.
