President Muhammadu Buhari has commiserated with the families of three University of Port Harcourt students reportedly murdered by their kidnappers and their bodies buried in a shallow grave in April.

The president, in a statement by his Senior Special Assistant on Media and Publicity, Garba Shehu, in Abuja on Sunday, also extended condolences to the university authorities and the Rivers State Government over the unfortunate incident.

He prayed that God would comfort all those who mourned these young students and grant their souls eternal rest.
