It is with great sadness that President Goodluck Jonathan received the news of the suicide bombing, today, at the Headquarters of the Church of Christ in Nigeria (COCIN) in Jos, Plateau state, and the mindless acts of reprisal that followed the incident.
    Mr. President conveys his sympathies and condolences to the victims of the odious acts. Those who seek to divide us by fear and terror will not succeed.  The indiscriminate bombing of Christians and Muslims is a threat to all peace-loving Nigerians.  Mr. President will continue to stand firm to ensure the safety and security of all Nigerians while ensuring that the relevant institutions move against those who disregard the sanctity of life in the pursuit of sectarian ambitions.
    Government is gradually and firmly bringing justice to those behind these attacks and exposing their identities and dismantling their terror infrastructure. Those behind similar acts of terror in recent times have been arrested and are being investigated with a view to prosecuting them accordingly, as a deterrent to others. President Jonathan appeals to all residents of Plateau state to remain calm and be law abiding.
       As we mourn with today’s victims, let it be known that efforts are being redoubled to win the war against terror.
