Presidency reacts to Plateau killings
President Muhammadu Buhari has condemned the killing of Nigerians in Plateau State, saying it has “gone too far”. This was contained in a statement signed by his Senior Special Assistant on Media and Publicity, Garba Shehu.
“President Buhari believes that this madness has gone too far. He has instructed the military and the police to not only bring the violence to an instant end, but to draw up a plan to ensure that there are no further attacks and reprisal attacks by one group against the other.
“President Buhari is devoted to the sanctity of Nigeria’s unity, and he encourages Nigerians of all groups to learn to live together in peace and harmony.
“He commiserates with the governor and people of Plateau State, and with those who lost their loved ones, friends and family: May God comfort them as only He can,” the statement read.
Suspected herdsmen had killed 6 people in a village in the state, despite curfew.
