The Speaker of the House of Representatives Abbas Tajudeen, has expressed grief over the killing of persons celebrating Maulud at Tudun Biri personnel of the Nigerian Army drone.
Over 83 persons were reportedly killed in the bombing on Sunday evening during the event.
The Nigerian Army in a submission to the Kaduna State government admitted responsibility for the bombing describing it as “inadvertent attack”.
The Kaduna State Government said the Nigerian Army had claimed responsibility for dropping the bomb, in what it described as “an unfortunate and unintended attack.”
The Speaker’s spokesperson, Musa Abdullahi Krishi, in a statement on Monday quoted his principal as describing the incident as one too many.
Speaker Abbas said he was worried that innocent people who were going about their lawful activities got killed in such circumstances.
Tajudeen called for a thorough investigation by the Nigerian Army to ascertain what led to such “a costly mistake.”
He said the Nigerian Army should leave no stone unturned in determining what happened with a view to forestalling a repeat of such an unfortunate incident.
Speaker Abbas sent his heartfelt condolences to the people and government of Kaduna State, especially the family of those that lost their loved ones in the Tudun Biri community.
