The Coalition of Northern Groups (CNG), on Saturday, criticized Senator Abdul’aziz Yar’Adua over comments credited to him on the military drone attack that resulted in the loss of numerous lives in Kaduna.
Th senator in an exclusive interview had described the attack as an honest mistake that should not warrant the resignation of the Chief of Army Staff (COAS), Lieutenant General Taoreed Lagbaja.
Reacting, CNG, in a statement by its national coordinator, Jamilu Aliyu Charanchi, said: “Such remarks show a severe lack of compassion, pity, and empathy towards the affected families.
“At a time when the nation should unite in grief and provide comfort to the impacted families, Senator Senator Abdul’aziz Yar’Adua statements have only deepened their pain and sorrow.
“It is expected that every leader in this period of mourning should show deep empathy, care and sensitivity towards the affected families.
“Rather than causing any more pain and anguish to the families, political leaders should unite and work together to prevent such attacks from happening again.”
