President Muhammadu Buhari has warned Nigerians, especially his Muslim bothers not to kill to please God, saying that they were ignorant as they could not please God by murdering people.

The statement came few hours after more than 17 persons were murdered in Rivers State by unknown Gunmen. Muhammadu Buhari vowed that his administration would investigate and bring to book all perpetrators of mayhem across the country.

The President said that no religion or civilised culture would tolerate violence, especially the taking of another life.

In a statement by his Senior Special Assistant on Media and Publicity, Garba Shehu, the President spoke at separate meetings with the Qadiriyya Muslim Movement in Africa and the Izalatul-Bid’a-Wa-Iqamatus-Sunnah at the Presidential Villa, Abuja.

“You can’t kill to please God; and I know no religion tolerates the taking of another person’s life in the name of a religious movement.

“There is never a justification for killing any member of the society. We have been tackling the Boko Haram menace, and we have made significant impact, and we will extend the measures to stop all wanton killings,’’ he said.

“Our priority is to also ensure that everyone in the country has something to eat. We are really concerned about the underprivileged.

“Graciously, God has been hearing our prayers. In the past two years, we have had bountiful harvest due to favourable conditions. All over the country, we have reports of farmers posting good harvests,” he said.
