Jama’atu Nasril Islam (JNI) condemns once more the wicked bomb explosions that rocked the Gombe Central Market yesterday, Thursday, 16th July, 2015, and that of the Damaturu Eid praying ground in the early hours of today, Friday, 17th July, 2015. These evil and wicked massacres are coming few days after similar acts had occurred in various parts of the country. These continued savage attacks stand condemned in their entirety. Indeed those carrying out such acts are Devils and whatever is their mission, may it be in futility and they be put to shame, Amin.
The following questions agitate discerning minds: Who really are the evil masterminds of this serialized wickedness? What are the motives behind their actions? Who are their sponsors? Who are those used as guinea pigs, in carrying out the dastardly acts? How are they conscripted? Why are Nigerian Muslims kept clueless, as to what is happening and by extension other citizens of the country?
As Muslims, we find solace that there is the Day of requital which all souls shall account for their deeds. If not so, how can we be subdued to unnecessary pains and sorrows in a moment of joy like Eid-el-Fitr. Nonetheless, Government must be seen to act proactively, so as to put a stop to this recreant acts.
Meanwhile, we commiserate with the Gombe and Yobe State Governments, the Emirs of Gombe and Damaturu, the families of the victims of these inhuman attacks. We pray Almighty Allah, would grant all the deceased forgiveness and mercy, while those that sustained injuries quick recovery, Amin.
