President Muhammadu Buhari has described the killing of Alex Badeh, former chief of defence staff, as “very sad and unfortunate”, ordering security agencies to fish out his killers.
The former chief of defence staff died on Tuesday from gunshot wounds sustained in an attack while returning from his farm along the Abuja-Keffi road.
The president regretted that Badeh fell victim to the incidence of violent and fatal attacks on the nation’s highways.
“The President commiserates 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,” Femi Adesina, special adviser to the president on media and publicity, said in a statement.
“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 regrets that he fell victim to incidence of violent and fatal attacks on the nation’s highways.
“He directs security agencies to find the killers of the 15th Chief of Defence Staff and bring them to face the full force of the law, while ensuring greater security and safety for all users of the country’s roads.
“The President prays that God Almighty comforts all those who mourn Air Chief Marshal Badeh and grant his soul peaceful rest.”
