Buhari south-east killings

President Muhammadu Buhari has warned perpetrators of killings in the South-East to expect tough response from security forces.

This was disclosed by the Presidency which appealed for caution over videos allegedly showing killings in the South-East, saying the videos may not be true.

Senior Special Assistant on Media and Publicity to the President, Garba Shehu, made this known in a statement on Wednesday.

According to him, experts are currently reviewing the videos to determine their authenticity just as he warned citizens against knee-jerk reactions to the video.

He said, “We call on all citizens to avoid hasty steps or conclusions that could exacerbate the situation, and on the contrary keep to a line of conduct that will help the law to take its proper course.

“The Presidency also cautions the public against the indiscriminate sharing of posts on social media so as to deny vested interests who seek to divide us and create disturbance the chance to do so.

“In the issuance of his very strong condemnation of these ‘wild, barbarous and wanton killings of innocent people’ in the South-East as well as the other parts of the country, which he described as ‘deeply distressing’, President Muhammadu Buhari warns the perpetrators of these acts to expect tough response from the security forces”.
