Buhari: condemns killing of humanitarian workers by terrorists

• President Buhari:

President Muhaammadu Buhari on Monday assured the people of Kaduna State and other parts of the country that his government would continue to deploy all available resources to fight “cold-hearted bandits” who have been killing people by the scores with a view to bringing them to their knees.

”These criminals should make no mistake that they can establish a reign of terror on the people without feeling the full might of the government which was elected to protect the citizens,” the President was quoted to have said in a statement by Shehu Garba, his spokesperson.

The presidency said this while expressing deep sadness and regret over the latest bandits attack in Kaduna State that killed several people and left many injured, assuring that the Buhari administration would not be blackmailed by criminals.

The President, while expressing profound commiserations to the victims of the heinous attack in Kaduna State, sent a strong warning to the killers:

“The criminals cannot be lucky always; we are determined to frustrate and defeat them, and no matter how long they run or where they hide, they would be smoked out and brought to justice.”

He said: ”From reports received, it is obvious that these bandits are unleashing their fury and frustration on innocent people because of the ongoing military and police offensive against them in the Birnin Gwari and Kaduru forests.

”This administration would not be blackmailed by criminals to abandon the current military operations against them.”
