PRESIDENT JONATHAN VISITING NYANYA BOMB BLAST VICTIMS AT ASOKORO HOSPITAL.
The council, in a statement in Abuja by its spokesman, Mr Eric Omare, said the strategy should be aimed at preventing further loss of lives and property.
It condemned Monday’s terrorist attack on a Nyanya motor park in a suburb of the FCT which claimed 71 lives with dozens injured.
The IYC commiserated with the families of the victims and urged the government to identify the source, buyers and importers of the arms being used for the dastardly act.
Besides, the council advised the government to block the sources of the weapons and punish the importers.
“Considering the deadly nature of attack and the implication on our national security, the IYC call on the Federal Government to take drastic and far reaching steps against sponsors of terrorism in Nigeria”, it urged.
The council explained that the problem of terrorism could not be resolved without tackling the source of their sponsorship.
It also called for the arrest and prosecution of the sponsors of Boko Haram to serve as deterrence.
According to the statement, government should use all the security apparatus at its disposal to unravel the sponsors of terrorism and insurgency in the country.
“Government must act decisively, irrespective of whose ox is gored and protect the ordinary people of Nigeria.
“The interest of the generality of Nigerians is over and above the interest of a few power hungry people who are sponsoring terrorism”, it said.
