Buhari urges govt to un­ravel Kaura killers

Daily Trust - - NEWS - From Sun­day Isuwa, Kaduna

For­mer Head of State, re­tired Gen. Muham­madu Buhari, yes­ter­day asked the Kaduna State govern­ment to find those be­hind the re­cent killing of over 100 people in Kaura LGA of the state.

Buhari spoke when he led lead­ers of the All Pro­gres­sives Congress (APC) to the palace of the af­fected com­mu­nity’s chief in Man­chok. He said the killers must be brought to book and pun­ished to serve as de­ter­rent.

“I am not a stranger in Kaura be­cause my el­der brother is a close friend of the Chief of Marwa. I am at home here. It’s un­for­tu­nate that such killings took place. The Kaduna State govern­ment must bring the per­pe­tra­tors to book,” he said.

Buhari re­gret­ted that the govern­ment un­der Pres­i­dent Good­luck Jonathan has failed to ad­dress the pro­longed se­cu­rity prob­lem in the coun­try, say­ing, if Nige­ri­ans give their man­date to the APC in the 2015 gen­eral elec­tions, se­cu­rity would be para­mount.

“This govern­ment has failed to ad­dress the pro­longed in­se­cu­rity in the coun­try. Se­cu­rity of lives and property should be a pri­or­ity of ev­ery govern­ment but from what is hap­pen­ing, the govern­ment is in­ca­pable and we must change it in 2015,” he said.
