Attacks planned to destabilise Nigeria – Buhari
Former military Head of State and leader of the All Progressives Congress (APC) retired Gen. Muhammadu Buhari yesterday described the sustained attacks in parts of the North as a ploy to destabilize Nigeria.
Speaking in Katsina during a condolence visit to victims of the recent violence in Faskari and Sabuwa LGAs, Buhari urged residents to help security agents expose the perpetrators.
He said: “They are trying to destabilise Nigeria, beginning with the North. They started with Borno, Kano and now they got to Katsina and Kaduna. So what is remaining?” Buhari said the attacks are terrorist acts that transcend religious and ethnic connotation as no group is spared.
“Since security agents have realized that the whole thing is presumptuous, residents must unite and help in unmasking those behind these attacks”, he said, urging people to report suspicious persons and movements to security agents. He commiserated with victims of the attacks which claimed several lives and prayed for the restoration of peace in the country, while also making donations to victims.
