President Muhammadu Buhari has expressed his heartfelt condolences to the families of victims of the twin bomb blasts in the town of Madagali, Adamawa State which claimed some lives and injured several others on Friday.
The President also condoled with the government and people of the state over the unfortunate incident, assuring them that they are not alone as the rest of nation mourns this grave loss with them.
Speaking via a statement issued by his media aide, Mr Garba Shuhu, the President restated that “putting an end to this senseless loss of innocent lives remains a top priority of this administration” adding that, “over the past few weeks, the Nigerian military have made significant advancements in an offensive aimed at slamming the final nail in the coffin of Boko Haram.”
According to him, “This latest attack is obviously an act of desperation, but the Nigerian military will neither be distracted nor relent.”
President Buhari used this opportunity to urge Nigerians to be more vigilant and immediately report any suspicious activity to the nearest security and law enforcement agency.
“The battle against terrorism is a joint effort involving all citizens, both government and governed. Together, Nigerians can and will defeat the evil that is Boko Haram,” he declared.
The President prayed that God will comfort the bereaved families in a way that only He can, while wishing the injured speedy recovery.
