Buhari

President Muhammadu Buhari has condemned the murder of 11 people in Benue’s Gwer West local government and the retaliation against innocent people by mobs who blocked roads to unleash terror and violence.

The president made the condemnation in a statement by his senior special assistant in media and advertising, Malam Garba Shehu, in Abuja on Tuesday.

“I fully condemn this latest unprovoked violence and counterattacks against innocent people who have nothing to do with the cause of the violence,” he said.

Buhari also deplored the killing of innocent people in Anambra by mobs, saying that “in both cases, innocent people were killed through no fault of their own.”

According to him, violence against innocent people by anyone and any group is unacceptable and indefensible.

“Hatred and intolerance have eaten so deeply and violate the sanctity of life.

“If we allow this culture of violence to go unchecked, those mobs would destroy law and order,” he says.

The president urged leaders of ethnic and religious groups to “play their own roles in a constructive way in controlling their followers or members, to support the government’s efforts for sustainable peace.”

Buhari warned Nigerians against “temptations to take the law into their own hands in the name of revenge because there are no winners in the cycle of violence, only losers.”

The president took pity on the families of the bereaved and the governments and towns of Benue and Anambra.

He also commended the police and other law enforcement agencies for their prompt response to prevent the escalation of violence.

He urged them to do everything possible to stop the perpetrators of the heinous attacks. (YAYA)
