According to the statement,
“The nation has again suffered human and material losses. Lives have been cut short in their prime by these rampaging army of the heartless.
We are, however, encouraged by the collective resolve of the government at every level to stop these workers of iniquity in their tracks, to put an end to the narrative of bloodletting, sorrows and severe pains that these evil doers have brought upon the country.
“Kaduna State, and indeed Nigeria, are assured of the support of the government and good people of Osun at this difficult time.”
