Boko Haram Will Surely Face The Consequences Of The Attack On UN Helicopter – Buhari

1 min read

President Muhammadu Buhari on Sunday has condemned what he referred to “the dastardly attack on UN aid helicopter in the North-East on Saturday by the Boko Haram terrorists.”

The Senior Special Assistant to the President on Media and Publicity, Garba Shehu, in a statement, quoted the president as saying that the attack was a “rear guard action” of members of the sect under pressure from the military.

The statement was titled, ‘President Buhari condemns Boko Haram’s cowardly attack on UN in the Nort East.’

The President was quoted as saying, “This latest cowardly attack on the UN humanitarian helicopter is yet another desperate rear guard action by the Boko Haram terrorists who have been under intense pressure from the Nigerian military.

“Let me reassure the international community and Nigerians that this latest cowardly attack on a UN helicopter which claimed the lives of two people, including a five -year old baby, would not go without severe consequences.

“Boko Haram terrorists are clearly on the back foot and their increasing attacks on innocent civilians, including UN humanitarian workers, was part of their desperation to prove that they are strong in order to cover up their dwindling fortunes.”

Buhari said the security of foreigners and Nigerians remained the top priority of his regime.

He promised not to leave any stone unturned until the regime eliminates “these remorseless enemies of humanity.”
