Boko Haram: UN condemns brutal massacre of Borno farmers

The United Nations, UN, has condemned “in the strongest terms” Saturday’s killing of 43 farmers by Boko Haram terrorists in Borno.

UN Secretary-General António Guterres in a statement by his spokesperson Mr. Stéphane Dujarric, on Monday described the attack as a “horrific”, one.

He, however, urged the Federal Government to ensure that those responsible for “these heinous crimes” be quickly brought to justice.

“The Secretary-General extends his deepest condolences to the families of the deceased and to the people of Nigeria.

“He wishes a swift recovery to the injured and calls for the immediate and safe return of the abductees and those still reported missing.

“The Secretary-General reaffirms the commitment of the UN to support the Government of Nigeria in its fight against terrorism and violent extremism and in its response to pressing humanitarian needs in the northeast of the country,” the statement said.
