At­tacks planned to desta­bilise Nigeria – Buhari

Daily Trust - - NEWS - From Atika Balal, Katsina

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.
