President Muhammadu Buhari has directed security operatives to ensure that the bandits who attacked and killed seven personnel of the Nigerian Security and Civil Defence Corps (NSCDC) are arrested and prosecuted accordingly.

The president in a statement by his spokesman, Garba Shehu, on Thursday, said he was anguished over the Monday attack on the officers while on duty in Kaduna State. 

Commending the officers for laying down their lives for the country, Mr Buhari described the incident as tragic. 

“The NSCDC personnel who braved all challenges to guard our nation and its people had made the ultimate sacrifice in the line of duty, my thoughts are with the bereaved families and their compatriots in the service, May God grant them and the entire service the fortitude to bear the loss.”

Seven NSCDC personnel and five officers of sister agencies attached to the Kaduna Ministry of Mine were attacked while on duty on Monday, in an ambush by bandits at the Kuriga mining site in Birnin Gwari Local Government Area of the State.
