Buhari condemns killings in South East, asks leaders to ‘forcefully’ speak against action 

President Muhammadu Buhari has again condemned the attacks against non-indigenes and law enforcement officials by terrorists in the South East.

The President’s reaction came amidst reports of the slaying of six Nigerien citizens and the brutal killings of a number of policemen at their duty posts.

Buhari, in a statement issued by his spokesman, Garba Shehu, promised all possible actions in conducting a speedy investigation to bring the perpetrators to justice.

The President also urged community and religious leaders “to speak more forcefully against the killings, stand up and defend the ethos of our cultural and religious heritage.”

“Those who know should point at specific people who did this,” he added.

President Buhari, who expressed his administration’s unwavering commitment to peace and stability in the South East and the entire country, said the reports of killings anywhere were sad and unwelcome.

He offered his condolences to the families of the law enforcement agents murdered and to the government and people of Niger Republic whose citizens were cruelly beheaded by the beastly attackers.
