DHQ disagrees with Amnesty International over facts about Kaduna bombing

Defence Headquarters (DHQ) has disagreed with Amnesty International over the figures of victims of Kaduna bombing, said 81 people died while 70 others were hospitalized in the incident

Defence Headquarters (DHQ) has come out with the “accurate” figures of the deaths in the Kaduna bombing, insisting the victims we’re not upto 120 reported by Amnesty International.

Major General Edward Buba, the Director of Defence Media Operations, disclosed this earlier today while addressing journalists at the Defence Headquarters in Abuja. According to him, 81 persons died and had been buried while 70 others have been hospitalized.

“Now, about the casualties, we heard from the community leader, and the figure he gave was close to 80. That is what he said. We can play the clip so you can listen to what he said. He said close to 80.

“That’s the figure of casualties that were buried. As for those who received treatment in the hospital, I recall the interview with the doctor, and he said 71, after which one person died, making it 70. So we can say 81 killed and 70 receiving treatment.”

Recall that Nigeria military has come under heavy criticism after it accidentally bombed Tudun Biri village in Igabi Local Government Area of Kaduna State on Sunday.
