President Muhammadu Buhari has condemned attacks on humanitarian workers in Rann, Borno State. The President in a statement yesterday by his Special Adviser on media and publicity Femi Adesina said the attacks more than ever shows 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, while sympathizing with the United Nations and other humanitarian agencies working at Rann, and in the country generally.
Meanwhile, the U.S Embassy in Nigeria said in a statement said:
“We extend our deepest condolences to the families of the victims, and to every family whose loved ones have been affected by this and other terrorist acts, “We voice our heartfelt solidarity with all those humanitarian workers who work every day to help Nigerians affected by the ongoing insurgency, and also with all those security forces and Nigerian citizens working together to end this terrorist violence.”
