My Govt didn’t abandon you, Buhari tells survivors of latest Zamfara massacre

President Muhammadu Buhari has told the survivors of the latest massacre in Zamfara State that his government has not abandoned them to their fate as search for dead bodies continue.

The President, in a statement issued Saturday by his media aide, Garba Shehu, expressed outrage over the reports of the large-scale killings.

Buhari, who appealed to the affected communities to be patient, said, “we are fiercely determined to smoke out and destroy these outlaws who have no regard for the sanctity of life.”

The President extended sympathy to the survivors and families of those killed, saying “The army and the air force are working together to get rid of these callous criminals as they acquire more equipment to track down and eliminate criminal gangs that are subjecting innocent people to the reign of terror, including illegal imposition of taxes on the communities under siege.

“The latest attacks on innocent people by the bandits is an act of desperation by mass murderers, now under relentless pressure from our military forces who are well equipped to effectively confront these enemies of humanity.

“In keeping with my commitment to tackle the monster of terrorism head on, let me reassure these besieged communities and other Nigerians that this government will not abandon them to their fate because we are more than ever determined to get rid of these outlaws.

“These criminals will be history because we are not going to relent in our current military operations to get rid of these thugs who have been terrorising innocent people.”
