Muhammadu Buhari has blasted the bloody terrorist attack that has claimed the lives of over 50 victims in Adamawa state.
A press statement signed by President Buhari’s Senior Special Assistant on Media and Publicity, Garba Shehu, described the attack as “very cruel and dastardly”.
The statement read, “The President enjoined the people in the entire North-east to be more vigilant and report suspicious persons to security agencies in order to avert further attacks on soft targets by the terrorist group.”
The president has also ordered the deployment of more police officers to combat the scourge of unknown gunmen terrorising the state.
Shehu’s statement read, “President Buhari has also directed the Inspector-General of Police, Ibrahim Idris, to deploy more police personnel to prevent further attacks by armed bandits in Zamfara State.
“Noting the current moves by the IGP to review police personnel and strategy in the state, the President directed him to visit the state and report back his findings about the deadly attacks.
“The directives followed recent killings and wanton destruction carried out by unknown gunmen on communities in Shinkafi and Maradun Local Government Areas of the state.
“President Buhari prayed that God would console the bereaved families in the Adamawa and Zamfara incidents, heal the injured, and grant rest to the souls of the departed.”
