President Muhammadu Buhari on Friday asked Muslims in Nigeria and across the world to reject Boko Haram “with one voice” following the latest attacks which killed 150 persons in Kukawa, Borno State. In a statement by Garba Shehu, his senior special assistant on media and publicity, Buhari described the attacks as “most inhuman and barbaric”. “President Buhari considers the murder by the terrorists of up to 150 innocent men, women and children in Kukawa a very heinous atrocity which must be unreservedly condemned by all people of conscience,” the statement read.
“The president believes that these last desperate acts of fleeing agents of terrorism underscore the urgent need to bring to early fruition the efforts of his government to form a more effective international coalition against insurgency and terrorism in Nigeria and neighbouring countries. “President Buhari urges Muslims in Nigeria and across the world to reject with one voice the attackers claim to be acting in the name of Islam, and tell the terrorists to stop the abasement of their religion. “The president conveys his heart-felt condolences to families of the victims of Boko Haram’s dreadful killings in Kukawa.” Nearly 150 persons lost their lives in separate attacks in Kukawa town and some villages in Mogunno local government area of Borno state.
