President Muhammadu Buhari says he is deeply troubled by persistent communal killings in Kaduna state, which has now been politicised.
The president made his feelings known when he reacted to the endless carnage in Kaduna state in a statement by his Senior Special Assistant on Media and Publicity, Garba Shehu, in Abuja.
President Buhari regretted that everything is politicised in Nigeria, including the efforts to bring offenders to justice, because their people will rise up in arms to resist their arrests and prosecution.
He described hate, bigotry and prejudice as deadly poisons that have infected the human psyche on such scale that people now don’t have any moral inhibitions about taking life.
The president, therefore, urged the actors in the crisis to come to terms with the fact that mutual violence has no winners, but losers on both sides of the conflict.
