Buhari

Uncharacteristically, President Muhammadu Buhari, shifted from his usual silence and reacted quickly on Tuesday to the early morning killing of two Catholic Church priests in Benue State, describing the action as vile, evil and satanic.

He promised that the culprits to the heinous crime which took place at a Catholic church in Ukpor-Mbalom community in Gwer East Local Government Area of Benue State, would pay the full price.

A statement signed by the President’s spokesman, Femi Adesina, conveying his anger on the development, said the he had also sent his condolences to the church and the community affected by the incident.

The statement read: “I extend my sincere condolences to the government and people of Benue State, the Mbalom community, and especially the Bishop, priests and members of the St Ignatius' Catholic Church, whose premises was the unfortunate venue of the heinous killings by gunmen. 

"This latest assault on innocent persons is particularly despicable. Violating a place of worship, killing priests and worshippers is not only vile, evil and satanic, it is clearly calculated to stoke up religious conflict and plunge our communities into endless bloodletting."
