President Muhammadu Buhari has condemned in entirety the terrorist attack at a mosque in the University of Maiduguri, this Morning, January 16, 2017.
In a statement issued by the Special Adviser to the President on Media and Publicity, Femi Adesina:
“President Buhari believes that this appalling attack on a Revered place of worship and Ivory Tower shows that the perpetrators have no true understanding of Islam, adding that their despicable acts of terrorism are cowardly, criminal, unjustifiable and punishable before God Almighty and the laws of the land”.
President Buhari also expressed sympathy and heartfelt condolences to the University Community, families of the victims, the government and people of Borno State.
In the statement, the President reassured communities in Borno and others in the Northeastern part of the country that his administration will continue to ensure that terrorism never triumph over peace-loving Nigerians.
He restated the need for Nigerians to remain more vigilant even as the security agencies continue to use all means at their disposal, to combat the remnants of insurgents and their sponsors.
The President wished those injured in the attack a speedy and full recovery, and comfort for families of the dead.
