President Muhammadu Buhari rained expletives on the Boko Haram terrorists, who sent suicide bombers to cause yet another havoc in a village near Maiduguri, Borno state capital.
But amidst his anger, Buhari offered consolatory words, his belief that the insurgents will soon become dustbins of history.
According to the president, with the current renewed determination of the Nigerian security agencies, coupled with the regional and international attention constantly focused on the eradication of terrorism, the activities of Boko Haram would soon become history.
He said the condemnable and reprehensible attack on a place of worship by the perpetrators, who pretended to be worshippers, has once again exposed them as mere criminals who had no place among civilised people.
Buhari expressed his deepest sympathy and condolence to the families of the victims and to the Government and people of Borno over the incident.
The President, who wished speedy recovery to those injured, commended the security agencies and care givers for their prompt deployment to the area.
According to him, those who perpetrate, finance, organise and sponsor these reprehensible acts of terrorism will not escape punishment.
He implored Nigerians to continue to remain vigilant to the antics of these lawless individuals and cooperate with the relevant government agencies in their unshaken resolve to defeat the enemy.
His reaction was reflected in a statement issued in Abuja on Wednesday by Mr Femi Adesina, Special In the latest terrorist attack at Umarari village, near Maiduguri, Borno, Boko Haram sent suicide bombers into a mosque killed 22 people, and wounded dozens of others.
