Buhari Wants End to Boki Killings
President Muhammadu Buhari has strongly condemned the on-going violence in the Boki Local Government Area of Cross River State, which has in the past 48 hours led to a yet to be ascertained number of deaths and arson attacks.
Senior Special Assistant to the President on Media and Publicity, Garba Shehu quoted Buhari as saying so far, there have been claims and counter claims as who restarted the killings and arson between the neighbouring communities of Nsadop community and the Boje community.
While noting that the origin of the mayhem is still unclear, President Buhari stressed that no dispute or grievance is worth the violent snatching away of another person's life.
He urged Nigerians to learn to live peacefully with each other and seek less brutish means of resolving conflicts.
President Buhari also called on the Cross River State government and the Boki local government authorities as well as security agencies to immediately look into the crisis and take action to ensure that the unfortunate situation is resolved both in the short and long terms.
