Nigeria’s President Mohammadu Buhari has expressed shock over the killing of 43 farmers on rice fields at Zabarmari, in Jere Local Government of Borno State, describing the terrorist killings as insane.
“I condemn the killing of our hardworking farmers by terrorists in Borno State. The entire country is hurt by these senseless killings. My thoughts are with their families in this time of grief. May their souls Rest In Peace.”
Mr Buhari said the government had given all the needed support to the armed forces “to take all necessary steps to protect the country’s population and its territory.”
