President Jonathan Condemns Boko Haram’s Reversion To Suicide Bombing Of Soft Targets

President Goodluck Ebele Jonathan
condemns the reversion by the terrorist group, Boko Haram to the callous
bombing of soft targets in parts of Nigeria in the wake of the ongoing rapid
recovery by gallant Nigerian troops and their multinational allies of areas
formerly controlled by the sect.
President Jonathan commiserates
with all families who have lost loved ones in the bombings which continued
today with attacks on Kano and Potiskum.
The President shares the grief of
all the bereaved families and is deeply saddened by the continued loss of many
innocent lives at the hands of misguided and desperate fanatics who are now
feeling the heat of the intense counter –insurgency operation by the Nigerian
Armed Forces.

The President assures all
Nigerians and the people of the North-Eastern states in particular that the
days of mourning victims of incessant terrorist attacks in the country will
soon be over as the tide has now definitely turned against Boko Haram.
President Jonathan further assures
the people of Nigeria that the gallant, courageous and patriotic officers and
men of the Nigerian Armed Forces, supported with new platforms, equipment and
logistics provided by the Federal Government will carry the ongoing operations
against the terrorists through to a successful conclusion in the shortest
possible time.
He affirms that his administration
will continue to take all necessary action to guarantee the success of ongoing
military operations against the terrorist group and drastically reduce its
ability to take and hold territory or recruit, groom and brainwash young
persons to undertake suicide bombing attacks on soft targets.
