Zamfara killings unacceptable – Buhari

From Juliana Taiwo-Obalonye, Abuja

President Muhammadu Buhari has condemned in strong terms the latest killing of tens of people by bandits in Zamfara State, declaring its not acceptable. 

According to a statement by the  Senior Special Assistant to the President on Media and Publicity, Garba Shehu, Buhari warned that “such wanton disregard for life will be brought to an end sooner than later.”

President Buhari in a reaction to the incident said that “this insane and persistent violence against innocent people must stop”, adding that “these criminals should stop pushing their luck too far by believing that the government lacks the capacity to crush them.”

He directed the military, security and intelligence agencies to take immediate steps to close all existing gaps in their operations being exploited by criminals to wreak havoc, and expressed hope the Special Operation launched by the military at 3:00am Thursday morning from Maru Local Government area will prove decisive in ridding the state of the “frequent and horrifying “bandit activities.

“The violence against poor villagers who are struggling with poverty and other severe economic challenges is not going to be tolerated by this administration,” he warned.

President Buhari called on the security forces to “redouble their efforts in bringing an end to this mindless violence against innocent people.”

“Let’s not give these criminals any opportunity to succeed by taking the war to their own camps and stop them in their tracks before they even have the time to respond under our massive fire power.”

President Buhari reassured the people of Zamfara State that, “despite the latest set back in our efforts to protect our citizens, there will be no compromise in our determination to defeat these enemies of humanity.”
