Community and religious leaders have been urged by President Muhammadu Buhari to denounce and protest killings in the South-East.
In a statement released on Saturday in Abuja by Malam Garba Shehu, Buhari made this claim.
The President gave his word that every effort was being made to find the offenders and undertake investigations.
Buhari’s response followed news of the murders of six Nigerien residents and police officers while they were on duty.
“Community and religious should speak more forcefully against the killings, stand up and defend the ethos of our cultural and religious heritage.
“Those who know should point at specific people who did this,” he said.
He stated that reports of killings anywhere were sad and unwelcome and reaffirmed his administration’s unshakeable commitment to peace and stability in the Southeast and across the entire nation.
The President expressed his condolences to the governments and people of Niger Republic, whose citizens were decapitated, as well as to the relatives of the murdered law enforcement officers.
