Presidential candidate of the Peoples Democratic Party in the 2019 general elections, Atiku Abubakar, has advised the Federal Government to keep Nigeria safe for Nigerians and foreigners alike.

Atiku, in a series of tweets via his verified Twitter handle @atiku on Monday, reacted to the news of the killing of a British national, Faye Mooney, and her Nigerian partner, Mathew Oguche, who both died in the attack on Kajuru Castle resort in Kaduna over the weekend.

Three other persons were also kidnapped in the incident.

The former vice president had tweeted:

“We need to keep Nigeria safe for Nigerians and foreigners. The death of any Nigerian or foreigner from terror, crime or insecurity grieves my heart. Nobody’s life is worth taking to advance a religious, political or criminal cause.

“I condemn the killing of British aid worker, Faye Mooney, and her Nigerian partner, Mathew Oguche two days ago in Kaduna State. Several other Nigerians were kidnapped during the episode.

“I want the government and people of the United Kingdom to know that these atrocious actions do not reflect Nigeria’s national character.

“These killings must end or Nigeria will lose desperately needed friends, partners and investors.

“Not only do I condemn this recent killing, but I make an urgent call for the federal and state authorities to track down the culprits and make them pay for their crimes.

“The time for empty rhetoric is long gone. Now is the time for urgent national action to stem insecurity.

“Nigeria must, once again, become synonymous with peace, progress and prosperity. This can only happen when crime and punishment are a natural cause and effect.

“As long as there is impunity, our nation will lack unity and security.

“Impunity must end and must end in earnest. These crimes continue to reoccur because previous killings have not been met with justice.

“When the punishment for crimes are not forthcoming, criminals are emboldened to commit even worse crimes.” --Punch
