Niger Republic killings: Terrorism spreading, Nigeria will help neighbours – Buhari
President Muhammadu Buhari has condemned the recent killing in Niger Republic.
Buhari warned on Friday that terrorism is increasing and surpassing expectations.
WITHIN NIGERIA reports that insurgents killed 69 people in Niger along the country’s border with Mali and Burkina Faso.
Buhari promised that Nigeria will continue to assist its neighbours in their efforts to combat terrorism.
In a statement by his Spokesman, Garba Shehu, he said the callous attack on innocent people, including a mayor, was a disturbing setback.
The Nigerian leader regretted how terrorist activities have caused “massive destructions in our countries.”
“We (African leaders) must leave no stone unturned to frustrate and defeat these common enemies of humanity.
” Terrorism shouldn’t be treated as a localised security threat, because it’s spreading its tentacles far beyond our imaginations.”
Buhari said it’s high time nations pulled resources and efforts together to defeat criminals creating serious social and economic disruptions.
