President Muhammadu Buhari has expressed shock over the mass killing by Boko Haram in a Borno village which resulted in the death of 81 residents.
KanyiDaily had reported that Boko Haram terrorists had on Tuesday killed at least 81 people, stole about 1,200 livestocks and razed down a village in Faduma Koloram, Gubio local government area of Borno State.
President Buhari said “he is deeply shocked by the brutal killing of tens of people by the Boko Haram/Islam in West Africa Province (ISWAP).”
Mr Shehu said the president was expecting a detailed briefing from the State Governor, Professor Babagana Zulum on the outcome of his visit to the affected communities,
He said the primordial nature of the killings is particularly shocking because it happened not long after the Ramadhan and Eid, and the country is preparing to celebrate the Democracy Day.
President Buhari charged the armed forces to sustain their recent string of successes against the terrorists to extract a heavy price from the attackers, and bring back all those they kidnapped as well as a large number of cattle rustled.
He also expressed the sincere condolences of the government and people of Nigeria to the bereaved families, communities and the government and people of Borno State.
