Buhari expresses grief over Boko Haram execution of four aid workers in Borno


President Muhammadu Buhari has released a statement condemning the execution of four aid workers in the North-East by terrorists.

The four men were among the six aid workers who were abducted on 26 July when their convoy came under attack near Damasak, in the Mobbar LGA.

They were working on a health project implemented by the INGO Action Against Hunger. One of the drivers was killed during the attack and another was reportedly executed on 24 September 2019.

According to the statement, the president also made reassurances of his regime defeating the terrorists.

“The defeat of evil by good is inevitable, no matter the pyrrhic victory evildoers seem to win”, a part of the statement read.

It added, “The President feels saddened by the claimed development, and commiserates with the family and loved ones of the aid workers, who had offered themselves to serve humanity at grave risks.

“The aid workers had been abducted near Damasak, Borno State, in July, and had been held despite all efforts to secure their release, till their alleged execution.”

The statement signed by presidential media aide, Femi Adesina quoted the President in his own words, saying, “Evil will always be defeated by good at the end of the day.

“Whatever seeming victory evil records, eventually rebounds on the evildoer. We are resolved to beat evil in this land, and we remain unrelenting till we achieve it.”

President Buhari has however urged all insurgents once again to lay down their arms, and rejoin decent humanity
