President Muhammadu Buhari visited Kaduna state on Tuesday following the recent crisis that has been rocking the state.
The President told the people of the state that the Federal Government will take the strongest measure possible to punish perpetrators of the latest killings.
He expressed profound sadness at the recent tragic loss of lives and property in Kasuwan Magani and the unrest around Kaduna metropolis, demanding an end to such wanton killings.
Buhari also directed the Nigeria Police Force to remain vigilant in securing communities and diligent in prosecuting criminal offences.
The President also appealed to community leaders including ward heads, village heads and traditional rulers to be closer to their people and not shield those who are planning to wreak havoc on the community from law enforcement agencies.
Commiserating with the government and people of Kaduna State, and families who lost loved ones in the unfortunate incidents, the President paid tribute to the late Agom Adara, Dr. Maiwada Galadima, eulogising the traditional ruler of Adara chiefdom for serving his community and Kaduna State with dedication.
