I Will Confront Boko Haram To The Last Man, Buhari Vows: Condemns Latest Attacks

Buhari tough looking

President  Muhammadu Buhari has made it clear that his government would never tolerate blackmail from members of Boko Haram, even as he assured that the nation’s security forces would confront them to the last man.

President Buhari who condemned in the strongest language, the latest Boko Haram’s attacks on Borno and Yobe communities extended his sympathy to the families of the victims.

A statement today in Abuja, Senior Special Assistant on Media and Publicity to the President, Malam Garba Shehu, quoted  the President as saying that he was deeply touched by these mindless incidents of violence on innocent people during the month of Ramadan.

In what appears to be one of his toughest expressions of outrage, President Buhari 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.”

Describing terrorists as “cowards who lack any moral inhibition and any iota of humanity to reason compassionately” warned that they would not find Nigeria a safe haven, because “they would be “hunted down without mercy and compromise.”

He reassured Nigerians that security would be tackled by his administration with vigorous determination.

According to President Buhari, the terrorists are enemies of everybody, and enemies of humanity everywhere, explaining that no sane people who believe in any god would be destroying the lives of innocent people in cold blood.

Buhari insisted that the Boko Haram terrorists don’t represent any religion, adding that the pattern of their indiscriminate violence against innocent people shows that they represent nothing else but anarchy and devilry.

The President also called on Nigerians to show more vigilance and be alert to the presence of suspicious people around them, adding that “the terrorists are enemies of religion and humanity.”

He explained that “no true believers in any God would target worshipers, holy places, or people who are fasting and other innocent Nigerians.” [myad]
