President Muhammadu Buhari has described the early Tuesday morning suicide bomb blast in a mosque in Mubi, Adamawa State as “very cruel and dastardly.”
The Advocate reports that at least 50 people were killed early Tuesday when a suicide bomber attacked a crowd of Muslim worshipers.
While commiserating with families of the several victims, government and people of the state, President Buhari, assured that government would do everything required to secure the state from the deadly menace of Boko Haram.
The President enjoined the people in the entire North East to be more vigilant and report suspicious persons to security agencies in order to avert further attacks on soft targets by the terrorist group.
Buhari also directed the Inspector-General of Police, Ibrahim Idris, to deploy more police personnel to prevent further attacks by armed bandits in Zamfara State.
