Atiku, who’s the Turakin Adamawa, expressed his anger at the incident via Facebook.

He wrote:

“I'm deeply saddened by the bombing incident at the Yola IDP camp today. Only persons with hearts of evil could do this. The Yola IDP camp is the largest in Nigeria, and refuge to thousands of people who fled the insurgency from Borno and Yobe.”

“Many people I know were working as volunteers in the camp, including staff and students of AUN, who sustained minor injuries in today's blast. Today's attack is an attempt to break the spirits of the people who came to seek refuge. The perpetrators will know no peace.”

“We refuse to be broken. We will win the war against terrorism. We shall overcome!”

The blast is the first to occur in an IDP camp since the beginning of the insurgency.
