President Muhammadu Buhari has condemned the recent killings in Benue, in which tens of people were killed in the Umogidi community, Entekpa-Adoka, in the Otukpo Local Government Area of the state.
In a statement by his spokesman, Garba Shehu, on Saturday in Abuja, the president urged that all efforts be made to end the “extreme violence.”
He directed the secret services, police and military commanders to enhance surveillance on every front and to immediately review the security management in the affected areas.
Mr Buhari condemned terrorism as a tool in inter-communal conflicts, urging that the attackers be found and dealt with swiftly under the law.
He conveyed his grief and sympathy to the families of those who died due to the attack.
“Our thoughts and prayers are with the families of those murdered. The entire nation stands united in the fight against the forces of terror and evil,” he said.
