President Muhammadu Buhari has condemned the recent attack on Nigerians by Boko Haram and bandits in the Northern part of the country.
The president also ordered the military to launch an attack on the military and recovered persons kidnapped by the terrorist groups.
In a statement by Senior Special Assistant to the President on Media & Publicity, Garba Shehu, the president described the latest attack as “one the most brutal terrorist attacks on innocent people emerged from the Northeast, President Muhammadu Buhari said he is deeply shocked by the brutal killing of tens of people by the Boko Haram/Islam in West Africa Province (ISWAP) in Gubio village, Borno State.”
The President, who was expecting a detailed briefing by the Governor, Professor Babagana Zulum on the outcome of his visit to the affected communities, said: “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.”
“President Buhari charged the armed forces 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.”
