The President in a statement by his Senior Special Assistant on Media and Publicity, Garba Shehu, condemned the gruesome killings by bandits in Kauran Fawa, Marke and Ruhiya of Idasu Ward of Giwa Local Government Area, expressing his sadness.
President Buhari returned from Istanbul on Sunday.
The President sent his condolence to the Government of Kaduna State and the people in the affected local governments. He also sent the nation’s condolences to the people of Zonkwa Chiefdom and the family of His Highness Nuhu Bature, the Agwam Kajju on his demise.
He prayed for the repose of the souls of the deceased.
President Buhari, however, disclosed that the security forces have turned the heat on the terrorists who are getting frustrated and are soft-targeting innocent citizens, looting their assets, burning their homes, and killing them indiscriminately.
The president reaffirmed his directive to the security and intelligence chiefs to do everything they can to destroy the remaining vestiges of the terrorists.
Bandits had killed residents of Zangon Kataf, Chikun, Birnin Gwari, Igabi and Kauru local governments in Kaduna State in the past week. A gang of bandits invaded Kauran Fawa, Marke and Riheya villages between Saturday and Sunday morning, killing innocent villagers, leading to the death of about 38 persons.
