President Muhammadu Buhari of Nigeria has commiserated with the families of Precious Owolabi, a National Youth Service Corps (NYSC) member with Channels Television, and Deputy Commissioner of Police, Usman Umar, of the Federal Capital Territory Police Command, who died during the violent protest by members of the Islamic Movement of Nigeria (IMN) in Abuja on Monday.  

The President also condoled with the management and staff of the television station and the police leadership over the loss, urging them to remain steadfast and committed to their professional callings.

Describing Owolabi and Umar as “law-abiding, hardworking and vibrant Nigerians with a promising future,” President Buhari stated that their untimely fate was sad, regrettable and worrisome. 

As a follow up to his directive to the leadership of security and law enforcement agencies to safeguard the nation against such mindless attacks, the Nigerian President reassured residents of Abuja in particular and the country in general to go about their lawful activities without fear.
