Buhari condemns Zamfara killings, orders arrest of perpetrators



President Muhammadu Buhari has strongly condemned Thursday’s massacre of innocent persons in Birane village, Zurmi Local Government Area of Zamfara State.

The President,  according to his spokesman, Garba Shehu, commiserated with families of victims of the heinous and inhuman attacks on defenceless citizens which left many injured.

He also directed security agencies to immediately mobilise and deploy their members to the vulnerable areas of the state, and ensure that the perpetrators are brought to face the full wrath of the law.

The President assured the Zamfara State government, victims of the mayhem and residents in the state, that the Federal Government will continue do all it takes to support security agencies to secure lives and property, not only in the affected state but all parts of the country.

President Buhari equally restated his administration’s determination to put an end to the spate of senseless spilling of innocent blood in parts of the country, and calls for restraint to allow the nation’s security apparatus to stem the undesirable trend.

The President prayed that almighty God will receive the souls of the departed, and comfort their families.
