President Buhari has appealed for all Nigerians’ cooperation as his government battles the various manifestations of evil ravaging the country.
He was reacting to the recent killing of Sokoto’s traveling villagers.
“It shows that the evil this administration is fighting demands the cooperation and participation of all Nigerians,” stated spokesman Femi Adesina.
According to the president, 23 people were killed in the attack. The charred remains were buried in a mass grave.
Buhari expressed his sorrow over the heinous attack on the innocent travelers.
Buhari, as he has in the past, stated that the nation’s security agencies had been directed to stop the attacks.
“I am very distressed at the manner of death visited on these hapless citizens who were undertaking a legitimate journey to another part of the country.
“I extend deep condolences to the families of the victims as I assure that the security agencies will continue to give their all to bring to an end the operations of these despicable people.”
