President Muhammadu Buhari has vowed that the killers of Captain Abdulkareem, the first son of Senator Bala Na’Allah in Kaduna will not go scot-free.
The President made the vow in a statement on Monday in which he reacted to the assassination of the lawmaker’s son by yet-to-be-identified assailants.
Buhari who expressed sorrow and commiserated with the family of the deceased on the development as contained in a statement by his spokesperson, Garba Shehu further assured Nigerians that his administration remains committed to protecting the lives and property of all citizens.
He also appealed to residents to expose all criminally-minded persons and criminal activities in their community by reporting such to security agencies for appropriate action.
“The death of Abdulkareem is another tragic chapter in our current security challenges, but I reassure Nigerians that my commitment to protect the lives and property of all Nigerians remains unwavering,” the President stated.
“I’m saddened by the tragic loss of Abdulkareem and other victims of violence and I wish to appeal to Nigerians to help our security agencies with intelligence in order to track down and bring these terrorist gangs to justice,” he further stressed.
Describing the killing of the younger Na’Allah as a painful loss, President Buhari said those who provide information to the criminals must also be exposed.
According to the President, “human intelligence is essential to the efforts to defeat these criminals; those who work as informants for criminals are destroying their own communities for the sake of pitiful financial gratification.”
The President prayed to Almighty Allah to repose the soul of the late Abdulkareem and give Senator Bala Na’Allah and his family as well as their friends the strength to bear the “very painful loss.”
