President Muhammadu Buhari, on Sunday, warned that his government will not allow any ethnic or religious group to stoke up hatred and violence against other groups in the country.

The President vowed to protect all religious and ethnic groups, whether majority or minority in line with its responsibility under the constitution.

In a statement on Sunday, his Spokesman, Garba Shehu, said that the President was reacting to reports of violence in some parts of the country by ethnic and sectional groups.

“The President condemned such violence and gave assurance that his government will act decisively to stop the spread of any such violence,” the statement added.

He appealed to religious and traditional leaders, as well as governors and other elected leaders across the country to join hands with the Federal Government to ensure that communities in their domain were not splintered along ethnic and other primordial lines.

Recall that a pandemonium broke out at Shasha Market in Ibadan following disagreement between a Yoruba man and an Hausa resident on Thursday, leading to the death of many people.

Despite the closure of the market by the State government, the clash between the two tribes continued.
