President Muhammadu Buhari, yesterday, condemned the recent attacks in Benue State, describing the development as unacceptable.
Criticizing the killings, in a statement handed out by his Senior Special Assistant on Media and Publicity, Garba Shehu, President Buhari said, “no one should attack anyone because of their way of life. Neither should anyone take revenge on others for mistreatment done to them. Both should be held responsible for their actions, and justice provided.”
Buhari said “it is unacceptable for lives to be taken by herdsmen and farmers alike. It is equally unsuitable for the lives of those merely practising their duties as police officers and government officials to also be lost. Government will hold those that took those lives to account.”
