D’banj visits Nyanya blast victims

A popular Nigerian musician, Dapo Oyebanji aka D-banj, on Tuesday in Abuja urged Nigerian youth to shun violence and embrace peace.
D’banj made the call when he visited some victims of the Nyanya bomb blast in company of the Abuja Health Secretary, Ademola Onakomaiya, at the Asokoro District Hospital, Abuja.
He said government alone cannot do all that is required for peace to reign in the country.
“I am a Nigerian and I am affected by any tragedy that befalls us and particularly in the spirit of Easter, I came to show the victims support.

“I have seen that the survivors are responding positively to treatment and thanked the medical team here for the efforts.
“We are appealing to the perpetrators of these acts to have a rethink and support the peace initiative so that our people would not be subjected to such wickedness,” he said.
D’banj said that terrorism in Nigeria was strange as Nigerians were known to be peace loving and advised them to embrace peace in the interest of development.
He said that artistes should be concerned about achieving peace in Nigeria because if the violence continues, the entertainment industry would be endangered.
D’banj donated several gift items to the victims.
