Saraki condoles with UK government over British tourist killed in Kaduna
President of the Nigerian Senate Bukola Saraki has sent a condolence message to the government of the United Kingdom following the cold-blooded murder of a British citizen by heavily armed kidnappers in Kaduna state.
In a tweet on Monday, April 22, Saraki expressed his sadness at the death of Faye Mooney who was shot dead by the gunmen alongside another Nigerian just before abducting three other locals.
The PDP lawmaker representing Kwara Central Senatorial District in the upper house of legislature also hoped that the security forces would be able to quickly apprehend the killers and also rescue those kidnapped by them.
Saraki’s message comes just hours after we reported that Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) presidential candidate in the 2019 general elections, Atiku Abubakar also reacted to the sad incident.
Atiku condemned the killing of British aid worker, Mooney, and her Nigerian colleague, Mathew Oguche in Kajuru Castle, a holiday resort in Kaduna state.
Atiku’s reaction was contained in a statement sent to journalists by his media office on Monday, April 22.
The former vice president commiserated with the government and people of the United Kingdom on the incident, stressing that the actions of the killers do not reflect Nigeria’s national character.
