President Muhammadu Buhari has assured that there will soon be an atmosphere of peace across the country.
The President gave the assurance Tuesday while sympathising with families of policemen reportedly murdered in the South East by “misguided separatist elements who videotaped the bestial killings and proceeded to share it widely on social media”.
He said “the people would no longer mourn and sorrow from wanton loss of lives”.
The President, in a statement issued by his spokesman Femi Adesina, lamented what he called “the horrific nature of the bloodletting” which, he added, indicated that some minds were “completely overtaken by hatred, and reduced to the basest level imaginable”.
The President, in the statement titled “President Buhari Condoles with Families of Policemen Murdered in Gruesome Manner” said the three abducted policemen, two of whom were later brutally executed, were serving the country, and providing security to those who ironically turned against them.
President Buhari, who sent condolences to the bereaved families, prayed for God’s comfort in their deep sorrow.
The President, who sympathised with all those who had lost loved ones in the different theatres of insecurity that had rocked the country, charged them to take solace in the inevitable victory of good over evil.
