President Muhammadu Buhari on Wednesday in

Abuja called for increased vigilance among the

civilian population to help ward off terror attacks

on soft targets around the country.

He also condemned in strongest terms the

barbaric suicide attacks which took place in Yola

and Kano on Tuesday and Wednesday respectively.

Buhari, in a statement issued by his Senior Special

Assistant on Media and Publicity, Garba Shehu,

extended his heartfelt condolences to the families

of the victims as well as to the Government and

people of Adamawa and Kano States respectively.

He reassured Nigerians that his administration is

very much determined to wipe out Boko Haram in

Nigeria and bring all perpetrators of the heinous

crime against humanity to justice.

The President urges Nigerians not to despair in the

face of cowardly terrorist attacks but to have

confidence in the ability of Nigeria’s reinvigorated,

well-equipped and well-motivated Armed Forces

and security agencies to overcome Boko Haram

very soon.

He, however, believes that vigilance is a potential

life saver, since security agents cannot be

everywhere to deter every planned attack.

Citizen’s vigilance, he said, will therefore help to

reduce the frequency of such attacks.
