The All Progressives Congress (APC) expresses deep regrets over Tuesday’s accidental bombing of an Internally Displaced Persons (IDPs) camp in Rann, Borno State.

We offer our deep condolences to the families of IDPs and humanitarian aid workers affected by the unfortunate accident. The Party also sympathises with the Borno State government. May the Almighty God grant the souls of the dead eternal rest and the injured speedy and full recovery.

Although Tuesday’s accident is regrettable, the Party urges humanitarian aid agencies not to be deterred in their noble and selfless mission to bring succour to the IDPs in the Northeast.

We also urge the Nigerian military to remain focussed on its ongoing final mopup operation of Boko Haram terrorists in the North East so that inhabitants of the insurgency-ravaged areas can quickly return safely to their normal and productive lives.
