In a statement by his media office, Alhaji Idris noted that the incident was a big loss to the entire country, and prayed that God granted them eternal rest.
“This is indeed a sad and big loss to their immediate families, the State and the country in general.
“The ugly and sad development once again necessitated a call for urgent restructuring of the nation’s security apparatus.
“We can no longer shy away from the fact that the country is at war with the insurgents, and therefore, those responsible for protecting our sovereignty should be at alert all the times to secure the citizens.
“Though we cannot question the Creator over this sad incident as we grieve over the demise of our young and gallant sons, we pray that God forgives their sins and grant them eternal rest.
“It is indeed a tragic loss to the entire Kogi State, we will continue to remember the honour they brought to the State, and the sacrifices they made will never be forgotten. May God grant them eternal rest”. Alhaji Abubakar Idris said.
