President Muhammadu Buhari has called for the strictest punishments to be meted on ritual killers and those responsible for attacks on police officers and various stations across the country.

The latest incidents of ritual killings and deadly attacks against on-duty policemen and ethnic minorities in Enugu, Imo, Abia, Zamfara, and Ogun States has caused some level of unease across the nation.

The President denounced the nefarious activities caused by the dastardly acts of violence, prayed for the souls of the departed and added that the courts of the land must apply the strictest of punishment under our laws to the perpetrators of these horrific crimes.

Expressing the sympathy of the nation to families of all the victims, President Buhari urged law enforcement agencies, state governments, local authorities, community, and religious leaders to take all lawful actions to prevent further incidents of this nature and to put in place measures against the normalization of these primitive acts, hate crimes and acts of terror.

Meanwhile, President Buhari has commended the government of Abia State for the actions it has so far taken on the incident a few days ago against traders at the New Cattle Market, in Ukwa Local Government Area of the state and appealed for calm.

He also expressed his sympathies to the families of those killed and suffered the loss of property following the attacks.
