President Buhari mourns slain Greenfield students


President Muhammadu Buhari has condemned the killing of three of the students kidnapped at Greenfield University, Kaduna State.

The president promised that his regime will fight banditry, kidnapping and what he called political murders with all the resources available.

The Senior Special Assistant to the President on Media and Publicity, Garba Shehu, disclosed these in a statement on Saturday.

Shehu quoted the President as describing the slain students as bright youngsters who were cut down by evil people in their prime.

“My thoughts are with their families in this time of grief. May their souls rest in peace,” President Buhari said.

The statement said the president condemned the recurring incidents of kidnappings and killings in Kaduna State describing it as barbaric.

The President also describes as unfortunate the utterances of some political and religious leaders that seem to further incite and stoke the pain and anguish among Nigerians.

President Buhari said addressing this scourge, requires a great show of empathy and coming together as a society to squarely confront the elements and the danger it poses to Nigeria’s democracy and peaceful life.
