Dr. Hubert Minnis, Free National Movement (FNM) Leader, issued the following statement regarding the homicides that took place on Easter:

“We were all shocked and saddened to learn the news of the three murders that took place over the  Easter Holidays . My sincere condolences and prayers go out to the families of those whose lives were taken—one of whom was an off-duty police officer. During this sobering time, all Bahamians should take the time to acknowledge and thank our first responders, including our police, who display courage every day, when on the job and off-duty.”

“I am hopeful that we as a nation will work harder than ever before to address this dark cloud of crime that continues to linger over our communities. It has never been more important for our neighborhood leaders, educators, police and community activists to work together in restoring safety to our streets. I am proud of all who work toward this end now, and hope to offer them encouragement that we as a nation can and will overcome this tribulation.”
