“The various communities in the state have taken many steps, with the support of security agencies and mediators to pull the state back from the brink of anarchy and senseless killings warranted by attacks and counterattacks. “It will be a painful loss to allow these unsavory acts to return. I urge all our communities in the state and the other parts of the country to embrace peace and bring to a stop these painful and unnecessary killings,” the president said.

President Buhari reiterated the determination of the federal government to protect the lives and property of all citizens, wherever they reside, while directing law enforcement agencies to apprehend the perpetrators of the killings and whoever their sponsors may be. He prayed God to grant peace to the souls of the victims and comfort to the grieving families and community.
