“I also condole with the families of all the other victims of the dastardly attack. The tragic incident, like those before it, is an attack on all the people of Nigeria. We are confident that the security agencies will not spare any resources to get the criminals behind it, as had been directed by the President.

“Terrorism and terrorists will not defeat our collective resolve to live in peace and harmony. We, therefore, urge the security agencies to do their best to rescue all the abductees alive, while the terrorists behind the incident are arrested and made to face the full weight of the law.”
