President Muhammadu Buhari on Sunday reassured Nigerians that his administration would soon bring violent killing of Nigerians by bandits and other criminal elements to an end.
Buhari, who has constantly assured Nigerians of their security, reiterated his position on the issue when he commiserated with the government and people of Zamfara State on the recent infiltration of bandits who killed several innocent citizens in Tsafe Local Government Area of the state.
In a statement through his Senior Special Assistant on Media and Publicity, Garba Shehu, Buhari condemned the incident, describing the bandit attacks as callous and despicable.
He then assured the people of Zamfara and other Nigerians who have lost loved ones to violent attacks that “the government under his watch will soon bring such dastardly acts to an end.”
The statement also said he commended the new administration in Zamfara State for putting in new security measures to curtail the activities of criminals and bandits and urged the citizens not to despair but to see the latest attack as a challenge to step up collective actions to rout the enemy, in partnership with the Federal Government.
While urging law enforcement agencies to take prompt and timely actions against the attackers, President Buhari appealed to citizens to have faith in the security agencies by giving them useful information on plans and the movements of the bandits.
