Buhari Reacts to Ritual Killings, Attacks on Uniform Personnel

Finally, President Muhammadu Buhari has shown concern over the spate of ritual killings and attacks on uniform personnel on duty.

The President condemned some of the recent incidents that transpired in states like Ogun, Abia, Zamfara, Imo, Enugu, consecutively, stressing that the attacks on ethnic minorities are detestable.

This was contained in a statement issued yesterday, where Buhari claimed that the developments seem to be a complete diversion from the norm and expectations from sane minds.

He sent condolence messages to the families of the deceased while charging law enforcement agencies, state governments, local authorities, community and religious leaders to take lawful actions in preventing further incidents of this nature.

Buhari Calls for Strict Punishments on Offenders

The President further tasked the courts to apply the strictest sanctions and punishments as contained in the constitution, adding that the perpetrators of these horrific crimes must be brought to book.

Meanwhile, he re-emphasised the need for all Nigerians to be their brother’s keeper and should see an attack, be it verbal or physical on anyone, as an attack on the very essence that keeps us as a nation.
