President Muhammadu Buhari has asked bandits and Boko Haram insurgents in the country to prepare to meet the same fate they have been inflicting on innocent ones soon.
“Those that think that profits can be made, either from money paid as ransom or in politics, will realise sooner than later that they are bound by the same fate as their victims.
“Banditry, kidnapping and the politics of murders will be fought with all the resources available to our country.”
President Buhari in a statement condemning the killing of three of the students kidnapped at Greenfield University, Kaduna State, lamented the recurring incidents of kidnappings and killings in Kaduna State in particular, which he described as “barbaric terror.”
The President condemned the unfortunate 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.”
The President described the killed students as bright youngsters who were cut down by evil people in their prime.
“My thoughts are with their families in this time of grief. May their souls rest in peace.”
