Comrade Hussein Omotosho, a social activist, has responded to the tragic drone mishap in Tudun Biri, Igabi Local Government Area of Kaduna State, where over a hundred lives were lost. Expressing condolences, he emphasized the need for national introspection in the wake of the incident.
“God should console the families of the victims. What happened is a national error,” Omotosho expressed, highlighting the gravity of the situation and its broader implications.
All one hundred and nine Senators of the 10th Senate on Sunday also pledged their one-month salaries, amounting to one hundred and nine million naira, to support the victims.
Blaming the country’s instability, Omotosho connected the mishap to the prevailing environment of uncertainty and unrest. “The instability in the country contributes to such accidents,” he remarked, pointing out the dire consequences of instability on innocent citizens.
“The shedding of innocent blood is a curse to any nation,” Omotosho stressed, urging the nation to take immediate steps to console the bereaved families and avert further turmoil.
Expressing concern about the circumstances leading to the tragic incident, Omotosho criticized the military’s action, attributing the deaths to an error in judgment. “The military’s error in identifying threats led to this tragedy. Investigations should have preceded such actions,” he remarked, advocating for thorough investigations before such forceful measures are taken.
In a call for accountability and due process, Omotosho urged authorities to prioritize thorough investigations and cautioned against hasty actions that could result in the loss of innocent lives.
