The President, Major General Muhammadu Buhari (retd.), on Wednesday in Abuja, condemned the terrorist attacks on four locations in the Kaura Local Government Area of Kaduna State in which two soldiers and tens of others were killed, describing it as a “mindless act of violence” that has no place in a civilised society.
In a statement signed by the Senior Special Assistant to the President on Media and Publicity, Garba Shehu, Buhari said “The primitive and cowardly attack on innocent civilians, law enforcement officials and the destruction of houses and shops are extremely painful and condemnable. The nation mourns with the Kagoro community, where the attacks took place and the military which lost their brave compatriots.”
The statement is titled, ‘President Buhari condemns attacks in Kaduna State as “mindless violence.”’
The President said he is keenly following the actions of the Kaduna State Government and security agencies who are doing their job to track the attackers and bring them to justice.
He warned against reprisals that may lead to further violence.
