President Muhammadu Buhari has said that he will not fold his arms and allow those responsible for the recent killing in parts of Kaduna State to go unpunished. He said the Federal Government will take strongest measures possible to punish the perpetrators.
President Buhari made the promise today while paying a condolence visit to the state.
During the visit, the President met with senior government officials, security chiefs, traditional rulers, religious, political and community leaders at the Musa Yar’Adua Sports Complex, Kaduna.
He expressed sadness at the recent loss of lives and property in the state and said such wanton killings must stop forthwith. The President directed the Nigeria Police Force to remain vigilant in securing communities and diligent in prosecuting criminal offences.
He also appealed to community leaders and traditional rulers to be closer to their people and not to shield those who are planning to wreak havoc on the community from law enforcement agencies.
He commended the efforts of the Kaduna State Government in managing the crisis and promised that the Federal Government will continue to work to ensure that more security assets are recruited and deployed across the country to protect all citizens
