President Buhari mourns as heavily armed men kill 63 Security operatives
President Muhammadu Buhari has called on security forces to be more proactive and redouble their efforts in order to frustrate the operational plans of terrorists before they launch attacks.
The President made the call Tuesday while expressing sadness over what he described as “the brutal murder of tens of vigilante members in Kebbi State by bandits who ambushed them in the Sakaba/Wassagu Local Government Area.”
According to him, “this egregious level of criminality is shocking and I want to assure Nigerians that I will do all it takes to tackle this monster decisively.”
“My greatest preoccupation is the threat to life posed by these murderous gangs and remorseless outlaws who have no slightest regard for the sanctity of life.”
President Buhari, in a statement issued by his spokesman, Garba Shehu, extended his sympathy to the families of the victims of what he called the “savagery”.
