President Goodluck Jonathan has sent a word of encouragement to the security forces both in Nigeria and Cameroon to remain resolute, and not be discouraged by the desperation of the agents of evil represented by Boko Haram.
He believes that with the continued cooperation between Nigeria’s security forces and their counterparts in neighbouring countries, the war against terror will surely be won.
The President, in a statement by his special adviser on media and publicity, Dr. Reuben Abati, condemned the recent terrorist attacks in Kano and Adamawa States as well as the kidnap of the Lamido of Kolofata in Northern Cameroon, Lamido Seini Lamine and the wife of the Vice Prime Minister of Cameroon.
This is even as he sympathized with the families of all those who lost their loved ones in the Kano and Adamawa attacks, wishing the injured speedy recovery.
President Jonathan regretted the deployment of young women as suicide bombers which he said represents a new low in the inhuman campaign by these terrorists and an expression of utter disregard for the dignity of the female gender as well as a wicked exploitation of the girl-child.
He stressed that the abduction of the Lamido of Kolofata and the wife of the Vice premier of Cameroon underscored the regional security threat that Boko Haram has become.
He commended the recent resolve by the Defence Ministers of Nigeria, Cameroon, Chad, Benin and Niger to further strengthen existing partnerships in order to forestall the desperate attempt by misguided elements to turn the sub-region into a battleground for terrorism and radical extremism. [myad]
