Earlier, Okay Nigeria had reported among the attacks killing of five persons in Faskari Local Government Area by armed bandits on Tuesday.
The digital news platform disclosed that the five persons were members of a local vigilante group called ‘Yan sakai’.
Reacting to the fresh killings in a statement on Wednesday, Buhari, through his spokesman, Garba Shehu, said the president specifically instructed the security chiefs to find out how the operation was carried out by the perpetrators, not minding the Holy month of Ramadan, and put in place measures to prevent future occurrence.
Buhari, who was briefed on the criminal and political intents of the attacks in Katsina and other parts of the North, described the carnage as senseless.
He charged that all those instigating violence in the North and other parts of the country will be exposed and made to face the wrath of the law.
The president commiserated with the governor and people of Katsina State over the losses. He prayed that Allah will comfort those who had lost loved ones.
