PRESIDENT MUHAMMADU BUHARI HAS DECRIED THE LEVEL OF DAMAGE DONE BY POLITICS IN SECURING THE LIVES AND PROPERTIES OF NIGERIANS ACROSS THE COUNTRY.

PRESIDENT  BUHARI SAID THIS WHILE CONDEMNING SATURDAY’S ATTACK BY GUNMEN WHICH LEFT AT LEAST NINE PERSONS DEAD IN NANDU GBOK COMMUNITY IN SANGA LOCAL GOVERNMENT AREA OF KADUNA STATE.

THE GUNMEN INVADED NANDU GBOK COMMUNITY IN THE EARLY HOURS OF SATURDAY AND STARTED SHOOTING SPORADICALLY, BURNING DOWN ABOUT 30 HOUSES IN THE PROCESS.

IN HIS REACTION, PRESIDENT BUHARI URGED THOSE BEHIND THE VIOLENCE IN KADUNA TO COME TO TERMS WITH THE FACT THAT MUTUAL VIOLENCE HAS NO WINNERS, BUT LOSERS ON BOTH SIDES OF THE CONFLICT.

THE PRESIDENT INSISTED THAT LACK OF COOPERATION BY THOSE INVOLVED MIGHT FRUSTRATE THE GOVERNMENT’S EFFORTS TOWARDS FINDING A LASTING SOLUTION, ESPECIALLY IF THOSE EFFORTS WERE POLITICISED. PRESIDENT BUHARI ALSO APPEALED TO THE WARRING COMMUNITIES TO STOP FRUSTRATING EFFORTS OF THE NATIONAL EMERGENCY MANAGEMENT AGENCY (NEMA) TO DELIVER FOOD, MEDICINES, AND TEMPORARY SHELTER TO THE VICTIMS OF THE VIOLENCE IN URGENT NEED OF ASSISTANCE.
