7:14 AM

United Nations Secretary-General, Mr. Ban Ki-moon on Monday night tasked the President Goodluck Jonathan-led administration to ensure they urgently look for the perpetrators of the bomb blast that killed scores of people in Abuja and to bring them to justice.

More than 70 people have reportedly been killed in the bombing, which took place as commuters were about to board buses and taxis to go to work in the capital. Over 100 people are said to be injured in the attack.

Mr. Ban Ki-moon who said he was shocked and saddened by the many lives that were lost on Monday, added that the United Nations would throw its weight behind the federal government to curb insecurity in Nigeria.

He also strongly condemned all indiscriminate killings and acts of violent extremism in the northern parts of Nigeria, stressing that the perpetrators of this attack, and those responsible for the continuing brutal attacks must be brought to justice.

Also, members of the United Nations Security Council led by the council's rotational president, Professor Joy U. Ogwu, also strongly condemned the multiple terrorist attacks committed by Boko Haram that occurred in Nigeria on 13 and 14 April, causing numerous deaths and injuries.



In a statement issued by Ogwu, the Nigerian Permanent Representative to the UN, in New York, the Council reaffirmed that terrorism in all its forms and manifestations is criminal and unjustifiable, regardless of its motivation, wherever, whenever and by whomsoever committed, and should not be associated with any religion, nationality, civilization or ethnic group.

The members of the 15-nation body underlined the need to bring perpetrators, organizers, financiers and sponsors of these reprehensible acts of terrorism to justice, and urged all States, in accordance with their obligations under international law and relevant Council resolutions, to cooperate actively with the Nigerian authorities in this regard.
