President Muhammadu Buhari, today, said he has directed the nation’s Armed Forces to take the anti-terrorism fight to the insurgents.
According to a statement by his Senior Special Assistant on Media and Publicity, Garba Shehu, the President disclosed this in a message he sent through his Chief of Staff, Ibrahim Gambari, to the Borno State governor, Babagana Zulum; the Shehu of Borno and the Zabarmari community where 43 rice farmers were killed by insurgents on Saturday.
According to Shehu, the President, in his message, described the massacre as “senseless, barbaric and gruesome murder.”
He said Buhari committed himself to making more resources available to the military to prosecute the war, adding that he will “work closely with neighbouring countries on bilateral and multilateral levels to ensure that there is no hiding place for the terrorists.
The President also commended Zulum for his leadership in running the affairs of the state.
