President Buhari has expressed sadness over the recent gruesome attack on innocent travellers in Sokoto State.

DAILY NIGERIAN reported how terrorists, often referred to as bandits, had burnt at least 37 people alive in Sabon Birni Local Government Area of Sokoto State.

The travelers, who were trying to migrate to other parts of the country due to insecurity in their communities, were stopped by the terrorists some six kilometers away from the Sabon Birni town.

Reacting to the incident on Wednesday, Mr Buhari said, “I am very distressed at the manner of death visited on these hapless citizens who were undertaking a legitimate journey to another part of the country.

“It shows that the evil this administration is confronting is one that requires the support and involvement of all Nigerians.

“I extend deep condolences to the families of the victims as I assure that the security agencies will continue to give their all to bring to an end the operations of these despicable people,” a statement, signed by a presidential spokesperson, Femi Adesina, noted.
