President Muhammadu Buhari has condemned the killing of three of the students kidnapped at Greenfield University, Kaduna State.
The President described the students as bright youngsters who were cut down by evil people in their prime.
The President condemned the recurring incidents of kidnappings and killings in Kaduna State, describing them as barbaric terror attacks.
He described as unfortunate, the tenor of some political and religious leaders that seem to further incite and stoke the pain and anguish of mourning families, who are forced to confront these atrocities.
The President said addressing the scourge would require a great show of empathy and unison, as a society, to collectively confront the killer elements endangering peaceful life in the country.
He gave strong assurances that those that think that profits could be made, either from money paid as ransom or in politics, would realise sooner than later that they were bound by the same fate as their victims.
In a statement by the Special Assistant to the President on Media and Publicity, Mallam Garba Shehu, President Buhari declares that banditry, kidnapping and the politics of murders will be fought with all the resources available to the country.
