President Muhammadu Buhari says the latest cowardly attack on a United Nations helicopter which claimed the lives of two people, including a five-year-old baby by members of the outlawed Boko Haram insurgents would not go without severe consequences.

ILL-FATED UN HELICOPTER

While condemning what he called “the dastardly attack on UN aid helicopter in the Northeast on Saturday by the Boko Haram terrorists, Buhari assured the international Community and Nigerians his Government resolve to make the Country unsafe for insurgents.

He said the group was on the back foot and their increasing attacks on innocent Civilians, including UN humanitarian workers, was part of their desperation to prove that they are strong in order to cover up their dwindling fortunes.

The Senior Special Assistant to the President on Media and Publicity, Mallam Garba Shehu disclosef this in a statement in Abuja last night, conveyed President assurance that the Boko Haram elements have been under intense pressure from the military.

According to him,  “This latest cowardly attack on the UN humanitarian helicopter is yet another desperate rear guard action by the Boko Haram terrorists who have been under intense pressure from the Nigerian military.

“Let me reassure the international community and Nigerians that this latest cowardly attack on a UN helicopter which claimed the lives of two people, including a five-year-old baby, would not go without severe consequences.
