President Muhammadu Buhari has ordered the deployment of the Nigerians army to Gubio village in Borno state after Islamic sect Boko Haram killed scores of people.
Expressing shock over the brutal killing of scores of people Boko Haram, Buhari ordered the military to go after the terrorists.
His reaction was contained in a statement Wednesday night by presidential spokesman, Garba Shehu.
Buhari said he is expecting a detailed briefing by Governor Babagana Zulum on the outcome of his visit to the affected communities.
He noted that the “primordial nature of the killings is particularly shocking because it happened not long after the Ramadan and Eid, and the country is preparing to celebrate Democracy Day.”
Buhari charged the armed forces to sustain “successes against the terrorists to extract a heavy price from the attackers”.
