Abuja bomb blasts: Senate wants victims’ families compensated

The Senate on Tuesday, condemned Friday’s bomb attacks in Kuje and Nyanya areas of the Federal Capital Territory.
This followed a motion by the Minority Whip, Philip Aduda (PDP, FCT), who said that the attacks were fresh calls for increased security consciousness and equipment of the military.
The upper chamber, which observed a minute silence for those who lost their lives in the attacks, urged the Federal Government to compensate the families of the dead and cater for the injured.
It also urged relevant security agencies to increase their intelligence gathering and embrace new technologies of combating terrorism, including bomb detection.
