Nigerian President Muhammadu Buhari.

The attack by suspected insurgents on vigilantes at Yargoje Forest in Jibia Local Government Area of Katsina State, North-West Nigeria, where many lives were lost, has been roundly condemned by President Muhammadu Buhari.

The insurgents reportedly ambushed a convoy of vigilantes in the forest as they went to recover stolen cows.

In a statement issued by his media aide, Malam Garba Shehu, on Sunday in Abuja, Nigeria’s Federal Capital Territory (FCT), the President paid tributes to the vigilantes and their family members.

The sacrifices of the brave men who were working to prevent and punish crime in their communities would not be forgotten, according to the President.

“Our thoughts and prayers are with the bereaved families in this difficult period. May Allah repose the souls of the deceased,’’ Buhari said.
