President Buhari says the evil of insecurity that his administration is confronting is one that requires the support of all Nigerians.
The President said this while reacting to the gruesome murder of 23 passengers in the bandit attack at Gidan Bawa village in Isa local government area of the state on Monday, December 6.
Armed men opened fire on a 42-seater bus traveling to Kaduna, killing several passengers.
In a statement released on his social media handle, the President said he is distressed by the killing carried out by the bandits. His statement reads
”I am very distressed at the manner of death visited by bandits on innocent citizens in Sokoto who were undertaking a legitimate journey to another part of the country.
The evil of insecurity that this administration is confronting is one that requires the support and involvement of all Nigerians.
I extend deep condolences to the families of the victims, as I assure that the security agencies will continue to give their all to bring to an end the operations of these despicable people.”
