Gov. Mai Mala-Buni of Yobe on Friday condoled with the families of the victims of terrorists’ attack, which occurred happened in Gujba Local Government Area (LGA) of the state.
Terrorists, believed to be members of the Islamic State of West Africa (ISWAP), on Thursday gunned down three policemen when they attacked a construction site and destroyed some equipment in Gujba LGA.
The governor, in a statement by his Director of Press and Media Affairs, Alhaji Mamman Mohammed, in Damaturu, described the victims as heroes who laid their lives in the defence of their country.
“The government and people of Yobe State commiserate with the families of the brave security men who lost their lives in the attack.
“The sacrifice made by these brave heroes shall never be in vain,” he said.
Mala-Buni vowed that such senseless and nefarious attacks would never deter him and his administration from executing programmes and policies that would improve the lives of the citizens.
He assured the residents of the state of his administration’s commitment to working together with security agencies to safeguard their lives and property.
