President Goodluck Jonathan on Sunday while receiving muslim leaders in the Federal Capital Territory on 2014 Eid-el-Fitri Sallah homage at the Presidential Villa said the country would have been in turmoil if former Head of State, Muhammadu Buhari and top Islamic preacher, Sheik Dahiru Bauchi have been killed in the recent terrorists attack in #Kaduna.
The duo last Wednesday escaped assassination when the Islamic sect, Boko Haram detonated twin bombs in Kaduna State, The Nation says.
“You can imagine if these two people had died in those attacks. Shiek Bauchi is one of our top Islamic preachers, he has millions of followers, Buhari former Head of State, a leading political figure has massive supporters.
“On the same day people wanted to kill them, those who plan the attacks are clearly sons of the devil. Because if they had killed these two people we wouldn’t have been here today, this country would have been in tumoil, we couldn’t have gathered here to celebrate.
“We thank Allah for saving their lives and preventing a major calamity that would have befallen our country. I use this opportunity to call on all Nigerians to work with govt to see that collectively we bring to an end the excesses of Boko haram and other terrorist groups. We are doing everything humanly possible to end it,” Jonathan stated.
