YOLA/By Tom Garba – The government of Adamawa state on Wednesday ordered immediate free medical treatment for victims of the Tuesday twin bomb blasts in Mubi, just as it called on well spirited individuals to donate blood to the survivors of the blast in Yola and Jimeta hospitals.

In a statement signed by the Commissioner of Information, Ahmad Sajoh, Adamawa state governor, Umaru Jibrilla Bindow, who described the bomb attack as ”satanic, cowardly and dastardly act” ordered the free medical treatment of the victims.

The government said the bomb blast claimed 27 lives while 56 injured are on admission in hospitals receiving treatment.

The Governor commiserate with the family of the affected and reinstated commitment to protect live and property of the people.

The governor suspended the weekly state executive council meeting, which is traditionally slated for Wednesdays, and led members of the state executive to commiserate with victims of the bomb blast.

He expressed appreciation to the management of Federal Medical Center Yola and the Red Cross Society for their prompt action in attending to the victims.

He said, “one of the victims had died earlier while being conveyed to Yola and two are in critical condition, while others are stable and are responding to treatment”.

Chairman of Mubi North, Musa Ajayi earlier Tuesday reminded the people of Mubi and environs of the need to go back to routine security checks. He noted that the multiple bomb blast that rocked the busy Kasuwan Gwanjo was an unfortunate thing.

He called on residents to be “suspicious” of one another, sustained the usual security alertness in churches, mosques and markets places.

He also observed that the twin bomb blast occurred as a result of laxities and failure of people to report any suspicious person(s) or movement.

“People have to be suspicious of one another and the normal routine security checks done by our local security has to be sustained, it seems people are relaxed, and the security consciousness is no longer there again.” Mr. Musa called.

Chief Medical Director of the Federal Medical Center Yola, Professor Muhammad Auwal, said, “medical personnel including volunteers and members of the Red Cross have been deployed to handle the situation”.

He gave assurance that, “the center is capable”, assuring that “the situation is under control”.
