President Muhammadu Buhari has expressed sadness over recent attack on a market in Zaki Biam by unknown gunmen that claimed loss of lives and commiserates with Benue State government and its people.
Buhari who condemned the wicked attack has directed security agencies to begin immediate investigation with a view to bringing the perpetrators of the dastardly act to book.
The President, in a statement released by his Special Adviser on Media and Publicity, Femi Adesina, while sympathising with those who lost loved ones, also prays that Almighty God will comfort the grieving families and grant the souls of the victims eternal rest.
He also condemns the wanton killings in other parts of the country and challenges security and law enforcement agencies to rise to the occasion and end this blight on the image of the country.
“We must condemn inhuman and unnecessary shedding of human blood all over the country. We seem to have lost value for human life, which is sacred. Man is the glory of God’s creation and nobody has the right to unjustly and unlawfully take another person’s life in a reckless manner,” President Buhari said.
Buhari however, enjoins all citizens to learn to live together in peace and brotherhood and not allow little misunderstandings to degenerate into heartless acts capable of straining the bonds of nationhood.
