Jonathan condemns murder of Yobe secondary school students by Boko Haram

Former President Goodluck Jonathan

The President said FG will continue to vigorously prosecute war against terror.

President Goodluck Jonathan has condemned the killing of dozens of students at a school in Yobe State in the early hours of Tuesday.

At least 29 students of the Federal Government College, Buni Yadi, Yobe, were killed at about 2:00 a.m. on Tuesday when armed men suspected to be members of the Boko Haram attacked the school while the students and officials were asleep.

A statement by the Special Adviser to the President on Media and Publicity, Reuben Abati, said, “On behalf of himself and the Federal Government, President Jonathan extends heartfelt condolences to the parents and relatives of the murdered students.

“The President wholly condemns the heinous, brutal and mindless killing of the guiltless students by deranged terrorists and fanatics who have clearly lost all human morality and descended to bestiality.”

Mr. Abati said the President assures Nigerians that his administration will not relent in its ongoing efforts to end the scourge of terrorism in parts of the country.

“The Armed Forces of Nigeria and other security agencies will continue to prosecute the war against terror with full vigour, diligence and determination until the dark cloud of mass murder and destruction of lives and property is permanently removed from our horizon,” he said.
