President Muhammadu Buhari has condemned the Boko Haram attack on Garkida in Adamawa State, extending his sympathy to families of victims.
The President assured that no part of Nigeria would be abandoned to their fate.
This assurance and Buhari’s condemnation of the act was contained in a statement by Garba Shehu, the senior special assistant to the President.
According to the communique, President Buhari said the attacks on soft targets by the terrorists are obvious signs of frustration because his administration has significantly weakened Boko Haram’s military capability to invade and hold Nigerian territory unchallenged.
President Buhari said since the coming of his administration, Boko Haram’s ability to invade and occupy Nigerian territories, let alone be able to hoist their flags had been frustrated.
The President said in the coming weeks Nigerians would witness an aggressive campaign to rout Boko Haram once and for all.
