The Speaker of the House of Representatives, Yakubu Dogara, has condemned the bomb attacks in Yola, Adamawa State and Kano in Kano State.
He appealed to the international community to rise up to the threat by terrorists.
According to a statement issued by his special adviser on media and public affairs, Turaki Hassan, Dogara described the Nigerian attacks as barbaric, senseless and wicked.
The Speaker mourned victims of the bomb blast and prayed for quick recovery for the scores injured.
He urged Nigerians to be security conscious and be vigilant so as to help security agencies with vital information about activities of terrorists and other criminal elements in their surroundings.
The Speaker also urged the security agencies to intensify efforts in intelligence gathering and sharing as it is the surest way of pre-empting such deadly and wicked attacks.
The statement read: “I am saddened by these ugly, unfortunate, dastardly and inhuman killings of innocent Nigerians by the blood-thirsty terrorists. I will urge our people not to cave in to these cowards who are all out to destroy our nation.
“I have strong conviction that, sooner rather than later, they shall be defeated and Nigeria and Nigerians will win this battle because it is a war against evil and good has always triumphed over evil.
“I want to use this medium to once again appeal to the international community to rise up to the threats by terrorists.
“Recent happenings around the world, as seen in attacks in Paris, France, and the downing of a Russian plane in Egypt, have shown that the world is facing a common threat from terrorists.
“It will, therefore, take combined, collaborative and joint efforts amongst members of the international community to rout these terrorists’ networks across the world.
