The killing of three of the students kidnapped at Greenfield University, Kaduna State was on Saturday condemned by president Muhammad Buhari.
He also noted that his administration will fight banditry, kidnapping and what he called political murders with all the resources available to the nation.
The Senior Special Assistant to the President on Media and Publicity, Garba Shehu, disclosed these in a statement titled ‘President Buhari denounces the killing of Kaduna students as barbaric terror attack.’
“My thoughts are with their families in this time of grief. May their souls rest in peace,” he further quoted the President as saying.
On the recurring incidents of kidnappings and killings in Kaduna State, in particular, Shehu said the President condemned them as “barbaric terror attacks,” and described as “unfortunate the tenor of some political and religious leaders that seem to further incite and stoke the pain and anguish of mourning families who are forced to confront these atrocities. Addressing this scourge, requires a 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.”
