This was disclosed in a statement by Garba Shehu, the Senior Special Assistant to the President on Media and Publicity, on Tuesday.

Buhari said he was deeply shocked and saddened to learn of the brutal killing of Raheem.

The President also directed the police authorities to take “the strongest possible action” against the culprits already detained.

Buhari said this incident is a stark reminder of the recurring menace of the mishandling of weapons and a wakeup call to law enforcement agencies, including the Police, to ensure the full implementation of reforms instituted by the administration on the subject of weapons handling as well as the protection of the rights of citizens,DAILY post Newspaper reports.
