President Muhammadu Buhari has described the latest Boko Haram attacks in Kukuwa, Borno State as barbaric and inhuman.
In a statement issued by his Senior Special Assistant on Media and Publicity, Garba Shehu, on Thursday, Buhari said the latest killing further endorsed his fight against the insurgents.
The insurgents killed up to 150 innocent men, women and children in Kukawa village and the president has said the attacks is a very heinous atrocity which must be condemned by anyone with a clear conscience.
The president said the latest killings further enforced his resolve to join hands with the international community and the neighbouring countries to destroy the insurgent forces.
Buhari said the insurgents were not acting in the name of Islam and urge all Muslims in Nigeria and the world over to come together to fight the Boko Haram forces.
The President also sympathized with families of victims in Kukawa.
President Buhari has repeatedly voiced his intentions to crush the Boko Haram insurgents terrorizing the Northern part of the country.
The president has embarked on numerous trips to neighbouring country to discuss with head of states on strategies on how to tackle the insurgents.
Buhari also spoke to the international community during the G-8 summit in May on the need for assistance from developed countries to show their support for the fight against the insurgents.
