By Sadiq Umar, Abuja – President Muhammadu Buhari has condemned what he called the barbaric suicide terrorists attacks in Kano earlier today, calling for increased vigilance among the civilian populace.
Buhari also condemned similar terrorist attacks which took place in Yola on the evening of Tuesday, November 17 and in Kano today, in which several persons lost their lives and severely injured
A statement by Special Assistant on Media, Mallam Garba Shehu, said the President extended his heartfelt condolences to the families of the victims as well as to the Government and people of Adamawa and Kano States respectively.
Buhari reassures Nigerians that his administration is very much determined to wipe out Boko Haram in Nigeria and bring all perpetrators of these heinous crime against humanity to justice.
The President urges all Nigerians not to despair in the face of cowardly terrorist attacks but to have confidence in the ability of Nigeria’s reinvigorated, well-equipped and well-motivated Armed Forces and security agencies to overcome Boko Haram very soon.
He believes, however, that vigilance is a potential lifesaver, since security agents cannot be everywhere to deter every planned attack.
“Citizen’s vigilance will therefore help to reduce the frequency of such attacks,” he stated
