Let No Group Test Our Will To Act, Buhari Tells Shi’ites


In a statement released by his Special Adviser on Media and Publicity, Mr Femi Adesina quoted Buhari as saying on Tuesday, “Let nobody or group doubt or test our will to act in the higher interest of the majority of our citizens,”

President Muhammadu Buhari on Tuesday warned that the protesting members of the Islamic Movement of Nigeria were testing the patience of the Federal Government with their violent protests at the Federal capital.

He said the federal government might be forced to act with maximum force to defend the interest of the majority Nigerians.

Reacting to the killing of Deputy Commissioner of Police Usman Umar and National Youth Service Corps member, Precious Owolabi, during Monday’s protest by the group, Buhari called on any group carrying out violent protests to stop immediately, so as not to allow the government take decisive actions against them.

The President said he was deeply touched by the death of Umar and Owolabi as he condoled with their families and the management of Channels TV, where the corps member was attached to.

He described the two as “law-abiding, hard-working and vibrant Nigerians with a promising future.”
