Herdsmen killing: Buhari speaks on killing of Rev. Fathers, tells Bunue people what to do

President Mohammadu Buhari on Thursday advised the people of Benue State against playing into the hands of their enemies.

Buhari said the continuing acts of mass killings and destruction in some parts of the country and Benue State in particular was an evil design by enemies of peace to disunite the country.

Buhari lamented the situation where a brother resorts to killing his brother and “a neighbor killing a neighbor and a community attacking and killing members of another community.”

This was contained in a statement signed by his Senior Special Assistant on Media and Publicity, Garba Shehu.

Buhari said those behind the Church attack that left 18 people dead, including two Priests, did not mean well for Nigeria and her peaceful coexistence.

Buhari also pointed out that the revenge attacks that followed in which 11 members of the Hausa communities were killed are part of the agenda of the bandits and their sponsors to turn Nigerians against one another, adding “we must resist all temptation to fall into this laid out plan.”

The statement read, “The President strongly warns citizens against playing into the hands of the agents of disunity.

“President Buhari says those behind the Church attack that left 18 people dead, including two Priests, did not mean well for Nigeria and peaceful coexistence.

“The revenge attacks that followed in which 11 members of the Hausa communities were killed are part of the agenda of the bandits and their sponsors to turn Nigerians against one another. We must resist all temptation to fall into this laid out plan.”
