Jonathan Condemns Killing Of College Students, Says Fg Will Continue To Prosecute War Against Terror


President Goodluck Ebele Jonathan has received with immense sadness and

anguish, news of the callous and senseless murder by terrorists of scores

of students at a college in Yobe State in the early hours of today.

On behalf of himself and the Federal Government, President Jonathan

extends heartfelt condolences to the parents and relatives of the murdered

The President wholly condemns the heinous, brutal and mindless killing of

the guiltless students by deranged terrorists and fanatics who have

clearly lost all human morality and descended to bestiality.

He assures the nation that his administration will not relent in its

ongoing efforts to end the scourge of terrorism in parts of the country

which has sadly claimed more innocent lives today.

The Armed Forces of Nigeria and other security agencies will continue to

prosecute the war against terror with full vigour, diligence and

determination until the dark cloud of mass murder and destruction of lives

and property is permanently removed from our horizon.
