President Muhammadu Buhari has condemned the killing of three of the students kidnapped at Greenfield University, Kaduna State.

President Buhari, in a statement issued Saturday by his spokesman, Garba Shehu, directed the deployment of “fiercest show of legitimate force against perpetrators.”

The President described the students as bright youngsters who were cut down by evil people in their prime.

He extended his condolences and that of the Federal Government to the relatives, associates of the murdered students and the Kaduna State government.

“My thoughts are with their families in this time of grief. May their souls rest in peace,” said the President.

On the recurring incidents of kidnappings and killings in Kaduna State in particular, the President condemned them as “barbaric terror attacks”.

President Buhari also described as “unfortunate” the tenor of some political and religious leaders that seemed to further incite and stoke the pain and anguish of mourning families forced to confront the tragedies.

He said that addressing this scourge required 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.”

He assured that those who thought that profits could be made, either from money paid as ransom or in politics “will suffer with equal measure of recompense under the full weight of the law for their wickedness and brutality.”

“Banditry, kidnapping and the politics of murders will be fought with all the resources available to our country,” declared the President.
