President Muhammadu Buhari expressed deep grief over the recent atrocious killings in Bassa Local Government Area of Plateau State.
The incident has claimed the souls of not fewer than eighteen people, The Daily Reality discovered.
Buhari’s lamentation was in a press statement by his spokesman, Malam Garba Shehu.
The president has lamented that the incident was not in keeping with the principles of the peace agreements reached between the two ethnic groups, Irigwe and the Fulani, in the area.
“My thoughts are with the families of the victims in this time of grief. May their souls rest in peace,” the president said.
Buhari warned that “Every group taking the law into their hands claims to be retaliating. As a society, there is no place for this sort of violence. This is unacceptable.”
