President Muhammadu Buhari has condemned the execution of four aid workers by Boko Haran terrorists in North-eastern Nigeria.
He said that the defeat of evil by good was inevitable no matter the pyrrhic victory evildoers seem to win.
The aid workers worked with Action Against Hunger. They were abducted by the terrorist group in July this year and remained in their captivity until their alleged murder.
Reacting in a statement on Saturday through his special adviser on media and publicity, Femi Adesina, Buhari said he was saddened by the reported development.
He commiserated with the family and loved ones of the aid workers, whom he said had offered themselves to serve humanity at grave risks.
“The aid workers had been abducted near Damasak, Borno State, in July, and had been held despite all efforts to secure their release, till their alleged execution.
“Evil will always be defeated by good at the end of the day. Whatever seeming victory evil records eventually rebound on the evildoer. We are resolved to beat evil in this land, and we remain unrelenting till we achieve it,” Buhari said.
He called on all insurgents once again to lay down their arms, and rejoin decent humanity.
