President Muhammadu Buhari, on Wednesday, condemned Monday’s attack by suspected Fulani herdsmen on Ukpabu Nimbo community in Enugu State, ordering the Inspector General of Police, IGP, Solomon Arase and the Chief of Defence Staff, CDS, General Olaonishakin to hunt down those who perpetrated the attack.
The President stated this in an address delivered on his behalf by the Minister of Information and Culture, Alhaji Lai Mohammed, at the public presentation of a book entitled “Who will love my country: Ideas for building the Nigeria of our dream’’, written by the Deputy Senate President, Senator Ike Ekweremadu, in Abuja.
The President said: “Before making my remarks about the book, let me use this platform to condemn, in the strongest possible terms, the attack perpetrated on the Ukpabu Nimbo community in Uzo-Uwani area of Enugu State on Monday.
“I deeply sympathise with all those who lost dear ones, as well as those who lost their properties, in the attack.
“I have directed the Chief of Defence Staff and the Inspector-General of Police to secure all communities under attacks by herdsmen, and to go after all the groups terrorizing innocent people all over the country. This government will not allow these attacks to continue”, the President said.
