‘The Battle Is Not Ideological’: Buhari Promises To Bring Sponsors Of Boko Haram To Justice

Must read

President Muhammadu Buhari on Saturday condemned the latest terror attacks in Abuja, Maiduguri and Yola.

In a statement he personally signed, Buhari observed that the Friday attacks in the three cities were apparently timed to coincide with Independence Day celebrations when Nigerians should be rejoicing.

The President commiserated with the families of the dead and prayed for the speedy recovery of the injured.

He said he had instructed security forces and other local authorities to maintain extra vigilance to forestall future attacks.

The President said his government was determined to stamp out the Boko Haram sect and bring all sponsors to justice.

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.”
