FG Set To Bring Perpetrators To Book
The Federal Government has assured that the security agencies will leave no stone unturned in fishing out the gang responsible for the killing of Briton, Faaye Mooney and Nigerian in the Kajuru Castle Resort attack, a popular resort in Kaduna State.
It also added that it will employ all efforts to see that the three persons who were kidnapped by the attacker, return to their families, unhurt.
In a statement, issued in Abuja today, the Minister of Information and Culture, Alhaji Lai Mohammed, condoled with the families of the two persons, a Nigerian and a Briton, who was killed in Friday’s attack, promising that the killers will be arrested and brought to justice.
The Minister said the dastardly attack that led to the death of Ms Faye Mooney, a British aid worker and Mr. Matthew Oguche, a Nigerian, while visiting the popular resort, was a setback to efforts to promote tourism in the country.
“We commiserate with the families and friends of Ms Mooney and Mr. Oguche, and wish to assure that the security agencies will leave no stone unturned in their efforts to apprehend the killers and bring them to justice,” he said.
Daily Trust reports that Alhaji Mohammed further noted that the Federal Government had recently stepped up efforts to stem the wave of violence and banditry in some parts of the country, through better intelligence gathering and increased collaboration by the security agencies.
He said the efforts have started paying off, as the level of violent attacks, banditry and kidnappings was being reduced nationwide.
“The government will not relent until all parts of the country are made safe for all, whether they are tourists, business people or ordinary Nigerians, who just want to live their lives under an atmosphere of peace and security,” the Minister said.
