Buhari orders security agencies to fish our perpetrators of Plateau killingsPresident Muhammadu Buhari has expressed sadness over the recent killing of persons, especially women and children in a night attack on Ancha village in Bassa local government area of Plateau state.
In a statement sent to journalists on Saturday, September 9 by his senior special assistant on media and publicity, Garba Shehu, the president described the killings as 'senseless.'
Buhari expressed disappointment at the disruption of peace in the state, urging stakeholders not to allow the incident destroy the progress made so far.

“It is unlawful of anyone or group to take the laws into their hands in the name of revenge or reprisals, rather than follow due process by allowing law enforcement agencies to fish out any such aggressors who will be made to face justice.
“The various communities in the state have taken many steps, with the support of security agencies and mediators to pull the state back from the brink of anarchy and senseless killings warranted by attacks and counterattacks.
“It will be a painful loss to allow these unsavoury acts to return. I urge all our communities in the state and the other parts of the country to embrace peace and bring to a stop these painful and unnecessary killings,"the president said.
President Buhari reiterated the determination of the federal government to protect the lives and property of all citizens, wherever they reside, while directing law enforcement agencies to apprehend the perpetrators of the killings and whoever their sponsors may be.
He prayed God to grant peace to the souls of the victims and comfort to the grieving families and community.
Meanwhile, two Boko Haram suspects believed to be computer analysts and another one, suspected to be a herbalist, have been arraigned at the Lokoja Chief Magistrate’s Court.
