President Muhammadu Buhari says Boko Haram fighters are godless and brutish for attacking humanitarian workers in Rann, Borno state.
Four Nigerian UN aid workers were killed in a night attack by Boko Haram fighters at Rann Community in Kala Balge, Borno.
A female aid worker is also missing, while one other sustained various degrees of injuries in the attack on Thursday.
“As I have always maintained, no true religion advocates hurting the innocent,” Buhari said in a statement issued on Friday by his media aide, Femi Adesina.
“To now further attack and kill those offering humanitarian aid is the height of bestiality. It is odious before both God and man.’’
According to the president, such cowardly attacks bolster the determination of government to defeat the terrorists.
