Again, Buhari sends condolences as terrorists kill 30 in Borno

Young people must lead the fight against corruption – Buhari

President Muhammadu Buhari has commiserated with families of victims of bomb blasts at a viewing centre in Mandarari, Konduga Local Government Area of Borno State.

Buhari’s condolence message is coming a day after he sent a similar message to families of over 50 killed by bandits in Zamfara and Sokoto states recently.

The attack in Mandarari, which happened on Sunday, is said to have left no less than 30 citizens killed following multiple bomb blasts supposedly carried out by terrorist Boko Haram members.

The attack was said to have also left 40 others wounded.

In his condolence message, which was made public by his special adviser on media, Buhari decried the heinous acts, stressing that perpetrators of evil acts have “judgment awaiting them, not only from man, via the long arms of the law, but also from God Almighty.”

He urged security agents to sustain surveillance in all theatres of security challenges in the country, taking into consideration the unconventional methods deployed by terrorists to harm innocent and unsuspecting victims.

The President then commended the efforts of emergency response workers and humanitarian organisations.

According to Adesina, Buhari prayed that “God will grant the souls of the departed eternal rest and comfort their families.”

Hardly any week passes without reports of Nigerians being killed in their tens if not hundreds, either by terrorist Boko Haram, bandits, killer herdsmen, kidnappers, cult groups or other criminal elements.

The Nigerian government has been trying in often sending condolence messages and assuring the people of adequate security.
