| June 9, 2012 More

Bauchi State Governor Isa Yuguda yesterday visited Harvest Field Church, Yelwa Tudu, the scene of Sunday’s suicide bombing. He described the incident as barbaric.

Yuguda said his administration would search for the perpetrators and bring them to justice. He added that his government would rebuild Harvest Field  Church, Living Faith Church (Winners’ Chapel) and other affected structures.

The governor, accompanied by the Chairman of the Christian Association of Nigeria (CAN), Bauchi State chapter, Rev. Lawi Pokti and the General Overseer/Founder of the Living Faith Church, Bishop David Oyedepo, decried the monumental loss of lives and properties during the bomb blast.

He said his administration would bring succour to the victims, adding that “we have already picked up the medical bills of the injured.”

The governor said he believed that the perpetrators of the act were neither Christians nor Muslims, because according to him, none of the two religions preaches violence. 

He added that his administration would continue to ensure the security of lives and property of the residents irrespective of their socio-political or religious differences. 

Governor Yuguda urged the people to be calm and go about their legitimate businesses, “but they should report suspected characters to security operatives.”

Rev. Pokti hailed the governor for visiting the scene of the blast, saying “it shows he is a dynamic leader who has demonstrated good leadership quality.” 

He assured that the Christian community would continue to pray for peace in the state.
