President Muhammadu Buhari yesterday directed the security agencies to fish out the killers of former Chief of Defence Staff, Air Chief Marshal Alex Badeh (rtd).
Badeh who was shot dead on Tuesday along Keffi – Bade road in Nasarawa State was Chief of Defence Staff under last administration.
Describing it as “very sad and unfortunate,” the President asked the security agencies to bring the killers to face the full force of the law, while ensuring greater security and safety for all users of the country’s roads.
The President, in a statement by his spokesperson, Femi Adesina commiserated with the family of the late four-star general, his friends and professional colleagues in the military, and the people and government of Adamawa State.
Noting that the late Badeh, who was also a former Chief of Air Staff, attained professional fulfilment in his over three decades military career, President Buhari regretted that he fell victim to incidence of violent and fatal attacks on the nation’s highways.
The President prayed that God Almighty comforts all those who mourn Air Chief Marshal Badeh and grant his soul peaceful rest.
