While condemning the incident, Buhari warned that “such wanton disregard for life will be brought to an end sooner than later.”
He said “this insane and persistent violence against innocent people must stop”.
He directed the military, security and intelligence agencies to take immediate steps to close all existing gaps in their operations being exploited by criminals to wreak havoc.
The president expressed hope the Special Operation launched by the military at 3:00am on Thursday from Maru Local Government area will prove decisive in ridding the state of the “frequent and horrifying “bandit activities.
He warned that, “The violence against poor villagers who are struggling with poverty and other severe economic challenges is not going to be tolerated by this administration.”
Buhari called on the security forces to “redouble their efforts in bringing an end to this mindless violence against innocent people.”
He said, “Let’s not give these criminals any opportunity to succeed by taking the war to their own camps and stop them in their tracks before they even have the time to respond under our massive fire power.”
