President Muhammadu Buhari has condemned the latest attacks by bandits in Sokoto State and inter-communal conflicts in Kaduna state.
He warned that “mass murder of innocent people by criminals would be met with full force.’’
President Buhari made the condemnation in a statement by his Senior Special Assistant on Media and Publicity, Garba Shehu, in Abuja on Wednesday
The president said that, “the death of one innocent Nigerian is no less important than the death of a hundred.
“It is a matter of time before these murderous gangs of criminals meet their Waterloo.’’
According to the president, the criminals cannot be lucky always because the law will ultimately catch up with them and deliver justice ruthlessly.
He said: “Let no group of outlaws doubt the will and resolve of my administration to confront criminals who have no iota of regard for the sanctity of life.’’
President Buhari also reassured Nigerians that their security remained a top priority of his government.
“Our security personnel are being trained, retrained, motivated and provided with essential equipment in order to improve their capacity to respond to our security challenges,’’ he added.
President Buhari commiserated with the families of the victims.
