Our security agencies are directed to leave no stone unturned to track down the culprits to account for their heinous actions.”
While conveying the condolences of the government and people of the state to the bereaved family, Yahaya lamented the way the deceased was killed as gruesome.
“The details of this incident, as preliminarily reported by the police, are nothing short of horrifying as a dark stain.
“Our hearts bleed for the bereaved family who are grappling with an unimaginable loss, and for the Jekadafari community as well as the entire citizens who are now scarred by the traumatic aftermath of this tragic event,” he said.
