President Muhammadu Buhari condemned the killings of 45 farmers in Nasarawa State’s Lafia, Obi, and Awe Local Government Areas on Tuesday.
Over 45 people were confirmed dead a few days ago, after several communities in the three local governments clashed.
President Buhari’s spokesman, Garba Shehu, issued a statement on Tuesday night in which he expressed the nation’s condolences to the bereaved families.
“I assure the people with all seriousness and sensitivity that this administration is doing its best to safeguard the security of people and will leave no stone unturned in fishing out the perpetrators of this senseless and barbaric incident, and bring them to justice,” he said.
President Buhari also extended his sympathies to the state’s administration and people, as well as his satisfaction with the state’s quick response to the disaster.
CP Adesina Soyemi, the State Commissioner of Police, promised that the command would bring the criminals to justice and restore peace to the affected regions.
