The Federal Government has condoled with the families of the two persons killed in Friday’s attack on Kajuru Castle Resort, Kajuru in Kaduna State.
The FG vowed their killers would be apprehended and brought to justice.
In a statement on Tuesday, the Minister of Information and Culture, Alhaji Lai Mohammed, said the security agencies were doing everything possible to rescue the three persons who were kidnapped by the unidentified gunmen at the resort.
He said the attack that led to the death of Ms Faye Mooney, a British aid worker, and Mr Matthew Oguche, a Nigerian, at the resort was a setback for the FG’s efforts to promote tourism in the country.
Mohammed said, ‘’We commiserate with the families and friends of Ms Mooney and Mr. Oguche, and wish to assure the public that the security agencies will leave no stone unturned in their efforts to apprehend the killers and bring them to justice.’’
He said the FG had stepped up efforts to stop banditry in some parts of the country.
The minister said, ‘’The government will not relent until all parts of the country are made safe for all, whether they are tourists, business people or ordinary Nigerians who just want to live their lives under an atmosphere of peace and security.’’
