President Muhammadu Buhari has once again ordered the Nigerian Armed Forces to intensify its fight against Boko Haram terrorists in the northeast region.
The president’s marching orders come in the wake of the gruesome murder of 43 farmersin Jere Local Government Area of Borno State on Saturday, November 28, 2020.
The terrorist attack has led to widespread condemnation of the Buhari-led government’s efforts towards eradicating the terrorist group.
The president sent a delegation to Maiduguri, Borno State capital, to deliver a condolence and solidarity message on Monday, November 30.
Represented by his Chief of Staff, Ibrahim Gambari, Buhari described the massacre in Zabarmari community as the worst form of ‘senseless, barbaric and gruesome murder’.
He promised that his administration will continue to make resources available to the military to keep up its onslaught against Boko Haram until the group is eradicated.
The 77-year-old also vowed to work closely with neighbouring countries similarly affected by Boko Haram activities to ensure there’s no hiding place for the terrorists.
“Nothing is more important than ensuring the security of lives and property of the people. Everything is secondary when security is at stake,” he said.
