Leaders of regional groups worried over Buhari’s rule of law comment

President Muhammadu Buhari says the attack on humanitarian workers in Rann, Borno State, was the “height of bestiality”, proving once again that Boko Haram insurgents were godless and utterly despicable.

“As I have always maintained, no true religion advocates hurting the innocent. To now further attack and kill those offering humanitarian aid is the height of bestiality. It is odious before both God and man,” the president said.

Buhari sympathised with the United Nations and other humanitarian agencies working at Rann, and the country in general.

President Buhari said such cowardly attacks would only bolster the determination of government to bring the Boko Haram insurgency to a decisive end, in the shortest possible time.
