President Muhammadu Buhari has described the latest killings in Plateau State as heinous, saying that the perpetrators should not be allowed to escape justice.
Naija News reports that Buhari was reacting to the latest bloody terrorists attacks on communities in Plateau State.
Recall bandit terrorists at about 11am last Sunday morning invaded the villages of Kukawa, Gyanbahu, Dungur and Kanam where over a 100 people were killed and many others injured.
The bandits also set over 100 houses ablaze and destroyed the telecom mast to make it difficult for the people to call for help.
More corpses of those trying to flee their assailants were recovered from nearby bushes on Monday.
In a statement by his Special Assistant on Media and Publicity, Garba Shehu, Buhari directed the Nigerian military not to spare or forgive terrorists
He ordered law enforcement agencies to work strenuously with the government of the state, to bring the situation under control and take steps to bring the culprits to justice quickly.
Buhari also expressed condolences over the terrorist incident, saying that as a matter of priority, peace must return at all costs to the state and the entire country.
“I urge all our citizens, the people of Plateau State in particular to expose the perpetrators of such incidents, their sponsors and those who encourage such criminals who carry out these dastardly acts of murder so that the law will take its course. They must not be forgiven,” the President said.
