Mr Abari cautioned against unnecessary speculation over the depressing incident, saying: “at moments like these Nigerians should step up their vigilance, stand in prayers and cooperate with security agencies.”

He said: “It is necessary to remind the media and other stakeholders to be cautious and factual in their reportage and be mindful of the pains that the parents and the nation at large are passing through.”
