Nigerian President, Muhammadu Buhari has appealed to Nigerians not to revenge attacks by suspected Fulani herdsmen.
Condemning the attacks of the herdsmen, Buhari called on victims of the attack not to revenge since the government has taken it upon itself to beef up security in the affected area.
Buhari stated this on Tuesday while commissioning Comprehensive Special School, Lafia, Nasarawa State.
Mr. Buhari noted that his administration would not tolerate the barbaric act and that the federal government was working hard to ensure that peace and stability returned to the North Central region which is mostly the recipient of the deadly attacks.
“I also want to assure the people of the north-central and indeed all Nigerians that the federal government is working day and night to ensure peace and stability returns.
“We have deployed additional resources to all the affected areas to maintain law and order.
“The attacks by suspected herdsmen and other bandits will not be tolerated.
“I appeal to all Nigerians to refrain from reprisal attacks. The security agencies have standing order to arrest and prosecute any and all persons found with illegal arms
“I will once again express my condolences and sympathy to all the affected victims of these barbaric acts,” he added.
