Buhari calls for courage amid spate of attacks

19 November 2015, 11:15Emeka Okonkwo

Abuja - President Muhammadu Buhari has urged citizens to remain upbeat the war against terror will be won despite the spate of terrorist attacks that have compromised gains made against the Boko Haram sect in recent weeks.

“The President urges 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, “ his spokesperson, Garba Sheu, said.

The sentiments come on the back of suicide terrorist attacks which took place in Yola on the evening of Tuesday and Kano on Wednesday.

These caused numerous deaths and injuries among civilians.

Buhari called for increased vigilance among the civilian population to help ward off suicide terror attacks on soft targets around the country.

He extended his condolences to the families of the victims as well as to the Government and people of Adamawa and Kano States.

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

“Citizen’s vigilance will therefore help to reduce the frequency of such attacks.”
