Sanga is a border town with Nasarawa and Plateau states, where the Deputy Governor-elect, Dr Hadiza Balarabe, hails from. Buhari further noted that violence could only leave sadness on its trail for the attackers on both sides of the divide and he is deeply troubled by this.

“I am deeply troubled by the fact that the sanctity of life is now being treated with such a reckless disregard that people derive joy in shedding the blood of others or perceived enemies,” Buhari was quoted as saying in a statement by his Senior Special Assistant on Media and Publicity, Mr Garba Shehu.

“No responsible leader would go to bed happy to see his citizens savagely killing one another on account of ethnic and religious bigotry.
Violence cannot be the solution to these persistent conflicts as long as people resort to deliberate provocation, revenge and counter-revenge. Lack of cooperation by those involved might frustrate government’s efforts towards finding a lasting solution, especially if those efforts are politicised.”

He also expressed his regrets, saying, “Everything is politicised in Nigeria, including the efforts to bring offenders to justice, because their people will rise up in arms to resist their arrests and prosecution.”
