President Muhammadu Buhari has condemned the killing of six Nigeriens and security operatives by terrorists in South-East Nigeria, calling on people who know those involved to expose them.
President Buhari promised all possible action to conduct a speedy investigation to bring the perpetrators to justice.
A statement issued by his Senior Special Assistant on Media and Publicity, Garba Shehu notes that President Buhari’s reaction is coming amidst reports of the slaying of six Niger Republic citizens and the brutal killing of a number of policemen at their duty posts.
The President urged community and religious leaders in the South-East to speak more forcefully against the killings, and to stand up and defend the ethos of our cultural and religious heritage. “Those who know should point at specific people who did this”.
He expressed his administration’s unwavering commitment to peace and stability in the South-East and the entire country, saying that the reports of killings anywhere is sad and unwelcome.
President Buhari offered his condolences to the families of the law enforcement agents murdered and to the Government and people of the Niger Republic whose citizens were cruelly beheaded by the attackers.
