DSO Project: Lai Mohammed approved payment of N2.5bn to Pinnacle -Witness tells Court

Federal government has condoled the families of the two persons, a Nigerian and Briton, who were
killed in Friday's attack at Kajuru Castle Resort, a popular resort in Kaduna State, promising that the
killers will be apprehended and brought to justice.
In a statement issued in Abuja yesterday, the Minister of Information and Culture, Alhaji Lai Mohammed
also assured that security agencies are doing everything possible to ensure that the three persons who
were kidnapped are released unharmed.
Lamenting the negative effect of the attack on Nigeria, the minister said the dastardly attack that led to
the death of Ms Faye Mooney, a British aid worker, and Mr. Matthew Oguche, a Nigerian, while visiting
the popular resort, is a setback to efforts to promote tourism in the country.
''We commiserate with the families and friends of Ms Mooney and Mr. Oguche and wish to assure that
security agencies will leave no stone unturned in their efforts to apprehend the killers and bring them to
justice,'' he said.
Alhaji Mohammed said the federal government has recently stepped up efforts to stem the wave of
violence and banditry in some parts of the country through better intelligence gathering and increased
collaboration by security agencies.
He said efforts have started paying off, as the level of violent attacks, banditry and kidnappings is being
reduced nationwide.
''Government will not relent until all parts of the country are made safe for all whether they are tourists,
business people or ordinary Nigerians who just want to live their lives under an atmosphere of peace
and security,'' he said.
