In a statement on Tuesday by Garba Shehu, presidential spokesperson, Buhari condemned the recent attacks in Sokoto, Plateau and Kaduna, describing the incidents as “barbaric”.

Buhari, who condoled with the family members of the victims, assured the state governments of his administration’s commitment to improving security.

“We have given security forces full freedom to deal with, and bring to end this madness,” he was quoted as saying.
