In a statement issued by his spokesman, Garba Shehu, on Tuesday, the president condemned the killings, vowing that the perpetrators “must not be spared or forgiven.”
Shehu added that Buhari also urged residents of the state to work with security agencies on providing information to ensure that the perpetrators are found.
The statement reads, “As full details emerge on the scale of the brutal terrorist attacks in Kanam and Wase communities in Plateau State, President Muhammadu Buhari has described the killings as heinous, saying that the perpetrators should not be allowed to escape justice.
“They should not be spared or forgiven,” directed the President.
“He ordered law enforcement agencies to work strenuously with the government of the state, to bring the situation under control and take steps to bring the culprits to justice quickly.
“President Buhari expressed condolences over the terrorist incident, saying that as a matter of priority, peace must return at all costs to the state and the entire country.
“I urge all our citizens, the people of Plateau State in particular to expose the perpetrators of such incidents, their sponsors and those who encourage such criminals who carry out these dastardly acts of murder, so that the law will take its course. They must not be forgiven.”
