ABUJA, (CAJ News) – NIGERIAN President Muhammadu Buhari has condemned the latest terrorist attacks on Borno and Yobe communities by the suspected Boko Haram members.
The President, speaking through his Senior Special Assistant on Media and Publicity, Malam Garba Shehu, said he was touched by these incidents of violence on innocent people during the month, especially coming during the Ramadan.
He said the terrorists were enemies of everybody and enemies of humanity everywhere.
According to him no sane people who believe in any deity would be destroying the lives of innocent people in cold blood, adding that terrorists did not represent any religion.

The President added that the pattern of their indiscriminate violence against innocent people showed that they represented anarchy and devilry.
He reminded the terrorists of his uncompromising resolve to tackle them with all the resources at the disposal of his government.
“Make no mistake about it: this government is ever determined to discharge its fundamental duty of protecting the lives of its citizens from physical threats from any groups bent on creating chaos, confusion, and on destroying social and economic life of the people,” Buhari said.
He extended his sympathy to the families of the victims and reassured all Nigerians that his government would never tolerate to terrorist blackmail.
“Our security forces would confront the Boko Haram bandits to the last man,” he said.
The President reassured Nigerians that security would be tackled by his administration with vigorous determination and advised Nigerians to show more vigilance and be alert to the presence of suspicious people around them.
