President Muhammadu Buhari says the quantum of adversity his regime is confronting can only be surmounted with the assistance of all Nigerians.
Mr Buhari made this assertion while reacting to the gruesome attacks on innocent travellers in Sokoto State.
No fewer than 30 travellers were burnt inside a bus travelling through Sokoto by bandits after they were ambushed Tuesday night.
“I am very distressed at the manner of death visited on these hapless citizens who were undertaking a legitimate journey to another part of the country.
“It shows that the evil this administration is confronting is one that requires the support and involvement of all Nigerians,” Mr Buhari was quoted to have said by his media aide, Femi Adesina, in a statement on Wednesday in Abuja.
The president extended deep condolences to the families of the victims, assuring that security agencies would continue to give their all to bring to an end the operations of the despicable people.
