President Buhari Condemns Latest Terror Attacks

Nigeria’s President, Muhammadu Buhari, has
condemned in the strongest terms the latest terror
attacks in Abuja the Federal Capital Territory.
In a statement personally signed by him, President
Muhammadu Buhari said, “These cowardly attacks
expose the real face of the planners and perpetrators
of these crimes.
“What quarrel do they have with the good people of
Nyanya motor park? What issue do they have with
innocent people in market places in Maiduguri, Yola
and Kuje?
“It is clear this battle is not ideological. It is between
the forces of peace and order and the evil forces of
murder and destruction.
“Security forces and other local authorities have been
instructed to maintain extra vigilance to forestall future
attacks. The Armed Forces have been empowered to
crush what remains of Boko Haram.
“This government is determined to stamp out Boko
Haram and all other terrorists of whatever persuasions
and bring all sponsors to justice.”
The President also condoled with the families of the
dead and prayed for the speedy recovery of the injured.
The attacks in Maiduguri, Yola and Abuja were
apparently timed to coincide with the commemoration
of Nigeria’s 55th year of Independence.
