Buhari Condemns Killings In Benue, Cautions Against Revenge

President Muhammadu Buhari has voiced out his displeasure and disappointment at the recent killings in Gwer West Local Government of Benue State.

This was contained in a statement signed by his Senior Special Assistant on Media and Publicity, Garba Shehu, titled ‘President Buhari condemns cycle of violence, says it has no winners.’

Buhari was quoted as saying: “I totally condemn this latest unprovoked violence and counter-attacks on innocent people that had nothing to do with the cause of the violence.”

“Violence on innocent people by anybody and any group is unacceptable and indefensible”.

“Hate and bigotry have eaten so deeply and violates the sanctity of life. If we allow this culture of violence to go unchecked, such mobs would destroy law and order” he said.

The President ended by commiserating with the families of the bereaved and the governments and people of Benue and Anambra States.
