Slain Kaduna Students: Buhari offers ‘thoughts and prayers’
President Buhari has again offered his condolences, thoughts and prayers to the families of the three students kidnapped and killed at Greenfield University, Kaduna State.
The Senior Special Assistant to the President on Media and Publicity, Garba Shehu, disclosed these in a statement on Saturday
“My thoughts are with their families in this time of grief. May their souls rest in peace,” The President said
On the recurring incidents of kidnappings and killings in Kaduna State, in particular, the President condemned them as “barbaric terror attacks,” and described as “unfortunate the tenor of some political and religious leaders that seem to further incite and stoke the pain and anguish of mourning families who are forced to confront these atrocities.
“Addressing this scourge, requires a great show of empathy and coming together as a society to squarely confront these elements and the danger it poses to our democracy and peaceful life in the country.”
“Banditry, kidnapping and the politics of murders will be fought with all the resources available to our country.” He said while promising that his administration will fight banditry, kidnapping and what he called political murders with all the resources available.
