President Buhari condemns Yola and Kano terror attacks; ...vows to defeat Boko Haram

President Buhari
President Muhammadu Buhari on Wednesday in Abuja called for increased vigilance among the civilian population to help ward off suicide terror attacks on soft targets around the country.
“The president condemned in strongest terms the barbaric suicide terrorist attacks which took place in Yola on the evening of Tuesday, November 17 and in Kano today, causing numerous deaths and injuries among civilians,” Mr. Buhari said via a statement by his spokesperson, Garba Shehu.
The president extended his heartfelt condolences to the families of the victims as well as to the governments and people of Adamawa and Kano States respectively.

President Buhari reassured Nigerians that his administration was very much determined to wipe out Boko Haram in Nigeria and bring all perpetrators of these heinous crime against humanity to justice.

The president urged all Nigerians not to despair in the face of cowardly terrorist attacks but to have confidence in the ability of Nigeria’s reinvigorated, well-equipped and well-motivated Armed Forces and security agencies to overcome Boko Haram very soon.
“He believes, however, that vigilance is a potential life saver, since security agents cannot be everywhere to deter every planned attack,” Mr. Shehu said.
“Citizen’s vigilance will therefore help to reduce the frequency of such attacks.”
