Buhari condemns the assassination of 53 traders in the Niger Republic.

President Muhammadu Buhari condemned the attack on a convoy returning from a weekly market in the Niger Republic's Tillaberi region, which resulted in the deaths of a number of citizens.

According to the Nigerian News Agency, over 53 innocent traders were killed by gunmen suspected of being members of the Boko Haram/ISWAP sect.

Buhari expressed his condolences to the families of the victims as well as all citizens of the neighboring country in a statement issued by his Senior Special Assistant on Media and Publicity, Garba Shehu.

In Ogun, a sought-after serial killer was apprehended.

Suleiman Ganiyu, an alleged notorious serial killer who had been on the command's wanted list, was arrested by police operatives in Ogun State.

The suspect was apprehended after Itamerin Comprehensive High School Ago-Iwoye received a distress call reporting that the suspect had entered the school grounds and began shooting indiscriminately.

The suspect, who has also been dubbed a cult kingpin, allegedly caused a commotion at the school after his younger brother, a student, was allegedly beaten.

Soldiers are said to have exchanged gunfire with bandits, leaving many people fearing for their lives.

Many people are believed to have been killed as soldiers engaged in a shootout with armed bandits in Kabasa village of Magami District in Gusau local government area of Zamfara state, according to a report by Daily Trust.

During the violence, at least three soldiers and seven other people were killed, according to the newspaper. Residents claimed that armed men arrived on motorcycles and opened fire on the residents.

Gov. Abdulrazaq is blamed by the CAN for the Kwara violence and bloodletting.

The Christian Association of Nigeria (CAN) has appealed to Nigerians to hold Governor AbdulRahman AbdulRazaq accountable for the violence and bloodshed in Kwara State as a result of his administration's Hijab policy.

The umbrella Christian body made the statement in response to alleged vandalism of churches and mission schools in the State by hoodlums who were allegedly enforcing the policy.

Barr. Joseph Daramola, the General Secretary of CAN, issued a statement on Wednesday calling on the Federal Government and the Inspector General of Police to intervene in the ongoing violence.
