In the aftermath of Boko Haram’s attacks on Maiduguri, Borno State on Saturday, President Muhammadu Buhari has condemned the evil acts, and has promised to protect the security of Nigerians all over the country.
Buhari made the declaration via a statement released by the head of his media team, Garba Shehu.
Punch summarizes the content of the statement as follows:
The President warned that his administration won’t tolerate wanton and wilful destruction of life by criminal elements that are bent on anarchy.
He said his administration meant business in its determination to tackle terrorism with all the resources available to his government.
Describing terrorists as cowardly murderers that target innocent people, Buhari explained that as the Commander-in-Chief, he has sworn to protect the security of Nigerians everywhere.
The President, while calling for increased vigilance by local communities, assured that his administration would give security close attention, and that his government was committed to boosting the morale of the armed forces by effectively funding them and attending to their welfare.
He condoled the families of the victims of the latest terrorist attack on Maiduguri and assured them that the worst days of the criminal elements will be over soon.
