President Buhari Condemns Boko Haram Killings, Encourages Military To Keep Attacks On Terrorists

The President, who was anticipating a well explained briefing by the Governor, Professor Babagana Zulum on the outcome of his visit to the communities affected by terrorist attacks, said the “primordial nature of the killings is particularly shocking because it happened not long after the Ramadhan and Eid, and the country is preparing to celebrate the Democracy Day.”

In condemning the terrorist attack incident, President Buhari urged troops to sustain their recent string of successes against the terrorists to extract a heavy price from the attackers, and bring back all those they kidnapped as well as the large number of cattle rustled.

President Buhari also expressed the sincere condolences of the government and people of Nigeria to the bereaved families, communities and the government and people of Borno State.
