It mentioned it was in response to stories of a breakout of violence in some parts of the nation by some ethnic and sectional groups. 

The President condemned such violence and gave the reassurance that his authorities will act decisively to cease the unfold of any such violence.

He appealed to non secular and traditional leaders as well governors and different elected leaders throughout the nation to hitch arms with the Federal Authorities to make sure that communities of their area are usually not splintered along ethnic and different primordial lines.
