He sent heartfelt condolences to the bereaved families, praying for God’s comfort in their deep sorrow.
He equally sympathised with all those who have lost loved ones in the different theatres of insecurity that had rocked the country, charging them to take solace in the inevitable victory of good over evil.
The president said some areas where insecurity was once fiercest in the country have now experienced some measures of calm.
He assured that the same would be replicated round the country, and the people would no longer mourn and sorrow from wanton loss of lives.
