President Muhammadu Buhari said on Friday the attack on humanitarian workers in Rann, Borno State, has further confirmed the Boko Haram insurgents as godless, brutish and utterly despised.
In a statement issued by his Special Adviser on Media and Publicity, Femi Adesina, Buhari said: “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.“
He also sympathized with the United Nations and other humanitarian agencies working at Rann and in the country generally.
The President affirmed that such cowardly attacks can only bolster the determination of government to bring the Boko Haram insurgency to a decisive end in the shortest possible time.
