The Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) has called for an investigation into the killing of several residents by military air strikes on Tudun Biri village in Igabi LGA of Kaduna.

On Sunday, the military air strikes targeted at terrorists killed many locals celebrating the birth of Prophet Muhammad.

The death toll from miscalculated airstrikes has now reportedly surpassed 100.

In a statement issued on Wednesday, Debo Ologunagba, PDP spokesperson, demanded an “independent system-wide inquiry” into the incident.

The opposition party described the mishap bombing as “heartrending and agonizing” noting that the victims were harmless Nigerians who were observing their religious rites.

The PDP said the bombing raises serious concern about the military intelligence gathering architecture.

“The fact hat the area was bombed twice raises serious concern and questions which border on intelligence gathering, information processing, synergy, command and operation control coordination in the security system,” the statement reads.

The PDP commiserated with the families of the victims of the bombing and the Kaduna state government.

While calling on the federal government to declare a day of national mourning in memory of the victims, the opposition party said more professionalism is required in the battle against terrorism in the country.
