Following the attack on United Nations Helicopter, and the reported death of two on Sunday, President Muhammadu Buhari, has assured International communities that he would deal ruthlessly on Boko Haram terrorists that plotted the attack.
Disclosing this in a statement signed by the Senior Special Assistant to the President on Media and Publicity, Mallam Garba Shehu, Buhari condemned the attack, noting that he would do everything thing in his power to bring perpetrators to book.
His words, “This latest cowardly attack on the UN humanitarian helicopter is yet another desperate rearguard action by the Boko Haram terrorists who have been under intense pressure from the Nigerian military.
“Let me reassure the international community and Nigerians that this latest cowardly attack on a UN helicopter which claimed the lives of two people, including a five-year-old baby, would not go without severe consequences.
“Boko Haram terrorists are clearly on the back foot and their increasing attacks on innocent civilians, including UN humanitarian workers, was part of their desperation to prove that they are strong in order to cover up their dwindling fortunes.”
