The Chairman, Abuja Municipal Area Council said Nyanya motor park would soon be moved “somewhere else’’.
Following the bomb explosions that rocked Nyanya twice in three weeks, the Chairman of Abuja Municipal Area Council, Micah Jiba, said on Friday that the Nyanya motor park would soon be moved “somewhere else.”
He, however, declined to provide details.
Mr. Jiba said the relocation was one of the measures being taken to address the challenge.
“I want to tell you that very soon; we will relocate this park to somewhere else.
“My appeal to the people who are behind this bombing is that they should stop it, they should be their brothers”.
At least 19 people died from an explosion near the park on Thursday night. Two weeks earlier, on April 14, at least 75 people died from an explosion at the park.
Also, the Village Head of Nyanya, Haruna Shuaibu, Friday, urged the Federal Government to deploy more security personnel to his domain to check the spate of bombings in the area.
“There was an explosion in Nyanya on April 14 and it happened again on May 1. We complained to the security agencies, we need more security.
“Innocent people are dying, we want government to assist us and mobilise more security agencies to Nyanya and let these bombings come to an end,” Mr. Shuaibu said.
The village head said traditional rulers in the area, including the Karu chiefdom, would soon visit the National Assembly to protest the bombings in the area.
