Buhari Talks Tough Over Killing Of Aid Workers By Boko Haram In Borno

President Muhammadu Buhari

“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.”
These were the words of President Muhammadu Buhari when responding to information that Boko Haram had killed four aid workers who they had been keeping captive since July this year.
The aid workers were abducted near Damasak, Borno State, in July, and werr held despite all efforts to secure their release, till their alleged execution.
A statement today, December 14 by the presidential spokesman, Femi Adesina quoted Buhari as vehemently condemning the execution of the aid workers.
The President emphasized that the defeat of evil by good is inevitable, “no matter the pyrrhic victory evildoers seem to win.”
He expressed sadness over the development, and sympathized with the family and loved ones of the aid workers, who had offered themselves to serve humanity at grave risks.
This was even as he advised all insurgents once again to lay down their arms, and rejoin decent humanity.
