Buhari pledges decisive action as terrorists kill 67 Kebbi vigilante members

PRESIDENT Bu­hari has vowed to deal decisively with the monster of banditry after about 67 vigilante members in Kebbi State were reported killed on Monday.

Buhari expressed sadness over what he described as “the brutal murder of tens of vigi­lante members in Kebbi State by bandits who ambushed them in the Sakaba/Wassagu Local Government Area”.

In a statement conveyed by his senior media assistant, Garba She­hu, in Abuja, yesterday, the President said, “This egregious level of criminality is shocking and I want to assure Nigerians that I will do all it takes to tackle this monster decisively.

“My greatest preoccupation is the threat to life posed by these murderous gangs and remorse­less outlaws who have no slight­est regard for the sanctity of life.

“While extending my sym­pathy to the families of the vic­tims of this savagery, let me use this opportunity to also call on our security forces to be more proactive and redouble their efforts in order to frustrate the operational plans of the terror­ists before they even launch attacks,” the president added.
