President Muhammadu Buhari has urged community and religious leaders in the South East to condemn killings going on in the region.

He spoke in light of the recent killings of civilians and law enforcement agents by non-state actors in the South East, promising to expedite actions to bring the perpetrators to book.  

The condemnation followed the alleged killing of six Nigerien citizens and the murder of scores of policemen at their duty posts. The President asked community and religious leaders to speak forcefully against the killings and promote the values of our cultural and religious heritage.

President Buhari stated this in a statement issued by his Senior Special Assistant on Media and Publicity, Mallam Garba Shehu.

The President reiterated his commitment to peace and stability in the southeast and the entire country, noting that the reports of killings anywhere were sad and unwelcome.

He condoled with the families of the officers that have been killed and to the government and people of Niger Republic whose citizens were victims of the attacks.
