"I completely condemned the bomb attack on a motor park in Nyanya. This is very inhuman, ungodly and barbaric. I don’t even have the adjectives to describe what these mad people have done. As far as I am concerned, the perpetrators are not human beings and in my own opinion, when they finally die their corpses should be given to pigs because they are on the same level with pigs.

Anybody who has given N1 to these people, whether they are local people or foreign financiers, the same judgment will come upon them and their children.” They will not escape it. So those are my words.” - Oritsejafor said in a statement released on Monday
