Borno Massacre: Boko Haram Ideology Devilish, Has No Place In A Civilized Society, Says Buhari

buhari2Following last weekend’s massacre of over 120 Nigerians in eight Borno communities by Boko Haram, former Head of State and chieftain of the All Progressives Congress, APC, General Muhammadu Buhari (rtd), has condemned the continued violence in Borno State. He described the ideology behind the Boko Haram insurgency as devilish and senseless, adding that it should not be allowed to thrive in any civilized society.

Buhari, therefore, called on the security agencies and the authorities to intensify vigilance just as he expressed surprise that the terrorists and criminal elements could still operate with impunity in spite of the heavy militarization of the region.

The former head of state’s reaction to the killings was contained in a statement posted on his Facebook page on Sunday night and as at press time, had attracted 862 likes and 967 comments.

The three-time presidential candidate and national leader of APC in the statement said:  “We condemn the recent escalation of senseless violence in Borno State. Our prayers and sympathies are with the victims and their families.

“There is no justification for this wanton disregard for the sanctity and dignity of human life. Any ideology that traffics in terror and violence is a devilish ideology that has no place in a civilized society.

“This is the time for our security agencies and those responsible for the security and well-being of our citizens to intensify vigilance in order to mitigate future occurrences.

“Because, it is inconceivable that despite heavy militarization, terrorists and other criminal elements are still able to terrify the defenceless populations of those areas.

“May God grant us the strength and unity to overcome this”, Buhari prayed.


  1. Buhari will now condemn boko haram because they (boko haram) have now turned the heat on muslims/northerners and not just Christians/southerners. Hypocrisy in action

  2. @Ndem Okon, Buhari is not hypocritical, rather, you are. Has he ever supported the killing of Christians? He would have been tried by security agencies, if he had had any relationship with Boko Haram. Be guided!

  3. Boko haram members are nothing but illitrate maggots, there is nothing islamic ideology from their actions. If u study islam you’ll learn the truth. As for the people who say boko haram kill only christians, if you live in the north you’ll learn that they don’t distinguish between muslims and xtians. They have even even assasinating high profile islamic scholars, so help me explain that.

  4. There is only one truth and not two, there is only one way and not many.
    Truth is absolute, but when it is mixed with a lie it is no more truth but lie.
    You cannot belong to both truth and lies. Hypocrisy can be seen in action.
    Prejudice is part of human nature, and only Godliness removes it. On which
    side of the fence are you? It is a razor blade fence which you cannot hang on!
    The BH have been repeating their mandate, that is pure Islam, original Islam.
    If you are not with them you are not a Muslim. Which way Nigeria?
