The Federal Government has sympathized with the families of the victims of the recent attacks in Plateau and ordered for immediate release of humanitarian relief to the affected communities.
This is contained in a statement issued by the Minister of Information and National Orientation, Alhaji Mohammed Idris, on Wednesday in Abuja
“The Federal Government of Nigeria strongly condemns the recent killings in Bokkos and Barkin-Ladi Local Government Areas of Plateau State.
“We would like to reiterate the commitment of the President Bola Ahmed Tinubu Administration to securing every inch of Nigerian territory, and ensuring that all forms of criminality by terrorists, bandits and militants are tackled boldly and decisively,” he said.
According to him, the Federal Government recognized the deep pains being felt by all the victims of the attacks, and pledged to scale up partnership with state governments in the collective task of ensuring lasting peace and security in Nigeria.
He said at the federal level, all hands were on deck across the security and intelligence agencies, to scale up intelligence-gathering and crisis-response efforts.
“We pray for God’s comfort and healing for all the affected communities and families. May the souls of the dead rest in peace. Amen,” Idris added.
