President Muhammadu Buhari has expressed sadness over the recent killing of over 40 passengers in Sokoto State by armed men suspected to be bandits.

This was disclosed in a statement by Buhari’s spokesman, Femi Adesina, on Wednesday.

DAILY POST reports that passengers who were travelling from Sabon Birni Local Government Area of the state to Sokoto Town were ambushed by the armed men who set fire on their vehicle and burnt them alive.

“I am very distressed at the manner of death visited on these hapless citizens who were undertaking a legitimate journey to another part of the country,” Buhari said.

“It shows that the evil this administration is confronting is one that requires the support and involvement of all Nigerians.

“I extend deep condolences to the families of the victims as I assure that the security agencies will continue to give their all to bring to an end the operations of these despicable people.”
