President Muhammadu Buhari says that perpetrators of killings in the South-East and other parts of Nigeria will be dealt with by security forces.
“I strongly condemn the wild, barbarous and wanton killings of innocent people in the South-East, as well as in other parts of Nigeria, Mr Buhari wrote on his official Twitter handle. “The perpetrators of these deeply distressing attacks should expect the toughest possible response from the security forces.”
The president was reacting to the recent gruesome killing of a mother – Fatima – and her four children in Anambra state.
Several quarters have accused the proscribed secessionist group, Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB) as the mastermind of the gruesome killings.
The Christian Association of Nigeria (CAN), Kaduna chapter, has also condemned the killing urging that IPOB terrorism needs to be stopped.
“This unfortunate act is getting out of hand. IPOB members are murderers, cowards and subhumans who oppress the innocent and kills children. FG should treat them the same way as Boko Haram,” CAN said.
Unknown assailants have continued to wreak havoc around the South-East since the incarceration of IPOB’s leader Nnamdi Kanu. The separatist group has repeatedly distanced itself from attacks on state assets and government functionaries.
