The President, Major General Muhammadu Buhari (retd.), has condemned the killing of Captain Abdulkareem Na’Allah, the son of the Senator representing Kebbi South, Bala Na’Allah.
The Senior Special Assistant to the President on Media and Publicity, Garba Shehu, in a statement on Monday said Buhari expressed “deep sorrow” over the incident.
“The death of Abdulkareem is another tragic chapter in our current security challenges, but I reassure Nigerians that my commitment to protect the lives and property of all Nigerians remains unwavering,” the President stated.
“I’m saddened by the tragic loss of Abdulkareem and other victims of violence and I wish to appeal to Nigerians to help our security agencies with intelligence in order to track down and bring these terrorist gangs to justice,” he further stressed.
He continued, “Human intelligence is essential to the efforts to defeat these criminals; those who work as informants for criminals are destroying their own communities for the sake of pitiful financial gratification.”
The President prayed to Almighty Allah to repose the soul of the late Abdulkareem and give Senator Bala Na’Allah and his family as well as their friends the strength to bear the “very painful loss.”
