President Muhammadu Buhari condemns beheading of Niger Republic citizens, killing of policemen in South East
President Muhammadu Buhari has reiterated his unequivocal condemnation of the attacks against non-indigenes and law enforcement officials by terrorists in the South East.
President Buhari spoke against the backdrop of the killing of six Niger Republic citizens and policemen in the region.
The President, in a statement by his media aide, Malam Garba Shehu, on Saturday in Abuja, promised all possible action in conducting a speedy investigation to bring the perpetrators to justice.
He urged community and religious leaders to “speak more forcefully against the killings, stand up and defend the ethos of our cultural and religious heritage.
“Those who know should point at specific people who did this.”
Buhari 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 were sad and unwelcome.
He offered his condolences to the families of the law enforcement agents murdered and to the government and people of Niger Republic, whose citizens were cruelly beheaded by the beastly attackers.
