President Muhammadu Buhari through a statement made by his Senior Special Assistant on Media and Publicity, Garba Shehu on 6th February, titled: “President Buhari calls killing of Nigerians in Burkina Faso unwelcome,” that he’ll sanction those who killed several travellers, including 16 Nigerians, in Burkina Faso.
Regarding the incident, the national secretary of the Islamic group, Sayyidi Yahaya, said the Ansaruddeen members were “randomly selected and cold-bloodedly shot to death in a most horrendous display of bestiality” after being stopped by the Burkinabe soldiers.
Reacting to the incident on Monday, Muhammed Buhari said he “received the tragic news of the murder of a number Nigerian Muslim pilgrims on their way to Kaolak, Senegal, when the buses conveying them came under gun attack in Burkina Faso.” He further said that effort will be put in place to bring their killers to book.
