Buhari Lands In Plateau, Osinbajo Says Killers Have Been Nabbed

President Muhammadu Buhari - after the visit of his vice, Prof. Yemi Osinbajo, to Plateau following the heartless killing of over 100 Nigerians by killer Herdsmen - has arrived the state to see things for himself.

On his part, VP Osinbajo said the police and army have made arrests in connection with the killings.

“The head of the Operation Safe Haven as well as the DIG (Police) have confirmed to me that some arrests have been made and those persons will face the law, and that more arrests will be made,” Osinbajo said during a visit to the state on Monday.

He described the recent killings and violence in the state as vicious and horrible, reiterating the resolve of the Federal Government to find permanent solutions to problems of insecurity in the country and ensure that the perpetrators of the recent attacks in the State are brought to book.

“We must condemn killings of any kind. It doesn’t matter whether these killings are by herdsmen killing villagers, or whether it is villagers who in one way or the other have killed others, including herdsmen. I think it is important that we condemn these killings, in particular these killings that have taken place where so many people have lost their lives in the last few days. 

"There is no reason at all why anyone who commits these offences will escape.”
