Nine of the youths being buried were killed following a dispute between members of the brigade and a security operative while on a procession to mark Easter.

Buhari said that his heart was filled with the pain that the families of the victims were facing as they buried these promising youngsters.

”May the Almighty God comfort you at this difficult time”.

The presidential aide also quoted the President as expressing shock over the reported tensions in the state capital which had led to the imposition of a curfew by the local authorities.

Buhari, therefore, directed ”security agencies in the state to ensure that vigilance is maintained”.
