President Muhammadu Buhari has said that his administration is worried about the incessant killings and kidnapping of men, women, and children all over the country.
Speaking on Saturday morning during his June 12 Democracy Day Broadcast, Buhari noted that he has ordered security agencies to swiftly but safely rescue victims and bring perpetrators to justice.
He said: “In the last two years, we have witnessed and overcome a good number of testy challenges that would have destroyed other nations especially relating to our collective security.
“The indefatigable can-d0 Spirit of the Nigerian has sustained us and would keep pushing us to put these challenges behind us.
“Unfortunately some of these challenges came in the shape of violent outrages leading to the loss of lives of many of our dear compatriots and the destruction of some of our infrastructure, including those devoted to improving our democratic processes.
“Once again, I want to render my sincere and heartfelt condolences to the families and friends of our gallant servicemen and women who lost their lives in the line of duty and as a sacrifice to keep Nigeria safe.
“I extend the same condolence to the families and friends of our countrymen, women, and children who were unfortunate victims of such senseless arsons, kidnappings, and murders.
“I also share the pains of families and direct victims of ransom-seeking, kidnapped victims who went through unimaginable trauma in the course of their forced imprisonment.
“Let me assure my fellow citizens that every incident, however minor gives me great worry and concern and I immediately order security agencies to swiftly but safely rescue victims and bring perpetrators to justice.”
