Buhari expresses grief over 47 soldiers killed during ‘Boko Haram ambush’


President Muhammadu Buhari has expressed “profound grief and sorrow’’ over the death of Nigerians soldiers who were killed in ambush by Boko Haram in Gorgi Village, Borno State.


About 47 soldiers according to the military authorities lost their lives as a result of the ambush.

The President in a statement by his Senior Special Assistant on Media and Publicity, Mallam Garba Shehu last night said, “sacrifices of our gallant patriots cannot be quantified, and their sacrifices cannot go in vain,’’ while commiserating with their families and those that sustained injuries.

According to statement, “the death of every soldier causes deep pains because he knows what it means to be a soldier, and fully understands the extreme risks associated with the profession.

President Buhari said “despite the tragedies and incidents, we cannot allow anarchists and mass murderers to hold the Country hostage.’’

He appealed to the military “not to allow the incident to affect their morale’’, assuring that his administration will continue to motivate and equip them adequately in order to cope with the complex challenges of unconventional warfare.

The statement said that the Nigerian Army has dispatched a team to assess the situation and report back to the government.
