President Buhari Condemned Killing of 20 people in Tawari Bassa Community in Kogi State

President Muhammadu Buhari has condemned the
murder of of over 20 people by unknown gunmen attack
in Tawari community of Kogi Local Government
Area, Kogi State.
The president expressed his feelings in a
statement by his Senior Special Assistant on
Media and Publicity, Malam Garba Shehu, in
Abuja on Friday.
He advised the communities involved in the
conflict to avoid revenge killings and taking the
law into their hands so as to restore sanity in the
affected areas.
Buhari said: “There is no excuse or justification
for killing innocent people by anybody or group,
and for whatever motive.
“The killings and revenge killings will only
aggravate the cycle of violence, creating neither
safety nor security for any side.
“People should avoid taking the law into their own
hands because doing so could make a bad
situation worse and undermine the government’s
efforts to tackle security challenges.
“I am gravely worried about frequency and
temptation of using violence to settle disputes
instead of following lawful and amicable means
to avoid needless destruction of lives and
property,’’ the president added.
