The President has condemned the wanton killings in some parts of the country and challenged security and law enforcement agencies to rise to the occasion.
In a statement signed by his Special Adviser on Media and Publicity, President MUHAMMADU BUHARI commiserated with the government and people of Benue state on the recent attack on a market in Zaki Biam by unknown gunmen which resulted in the loss of lives.
The President condemned what he called the wicked attack and directed security agencies to begin immediate investigation with a view to bringing the perpetrators of the dastardly act to book.
According to President BUHARI, nobody has the right to unjustly and unlawfully take another person’s life in a reckless manner.
He therefore enjoined all citizens to learn to live together in peace and brotherhood and not allow little misunderstandings to degenerate into heartless acts capable of straining the bonds of nationhood.
