President Muhammadu Buhari on Friday said the attack on humanitarian workers in Rann, Borno State, more than ever portrayed Boko Haram insurgents as godless, brutish, and utterly to be despised.
“As I have always maintained, no true religion advocates hurting the innocent. To now further attack and kill those offering humanitarian aid is the height of bestiality. It is odious before both God and man,” the President said in a statement by his Special Adviser on Media and Publicity, Mr. Femi Adesina
Buhari sympathised with the United Nations and other humanitarian agencies working at Rann, and in the country generally.
He affirmed that such cowardly attacks can only bolster the determination of the government to bring the Boko Haram insurgency to a decisive end, in the shortest possible time. According to Punchng reports
