Jonathan condemns Yobe killings

President Goodluck Jonathan  has  condemned  the killings of students  by suspected Boko Haram terrorists at a college in Yobe State, Tuesday.

In a statement by Reuben Abati, Special Adviser to the President (Media & Publicity),  Jonathan condemned , ” 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.”

The President however,  reassured that his administration will not relent in its ongoing efforts to end the scourge of terrorism.

The statement:

“President Goodluck  Jonathan has received with immense sadness and anguish, news of the callous and senseless murder by terrorists of scores of students at a college in Yobe State in the early hours of today.

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.

He assures the nation that his administration will not relent in its ongoing efforts to end the scourge of terrorism in parts of the country which has sadly claimed more innocent lives today.

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.”
