The Vice President, Prof. Yemi Osinbajo (SAN) on Wednesday expressed condolences to the families and victims of the twin suicide bombing of an Internally Displaced Persons (IDP) camp in Dikwa, Borno State.
A statement from his office last night reads: “His prayers are that the Almighty God will comfort them and grant the injured persons quick recovery.
“The Vice President stated that it is indeed regrettable that the heartless terrorists chose to unleash their wickedness on people who were taking refuge from previous acts of destruction in their homes.
“He reassured the nation that the full weight of the federal government’s force will be deployed to hunt down the perpetrators of this evil act and also to confront terrorists continuously in the protection of life, liberty and property of all Nigerians: there will be no hiding place for terrorists.
“Prof. Osinbajo has given directives that formidable security in and around the IDP Camps in the country be beefed up and renewed measures put in place to guard against future occurrences”.
Osinbajo, who was Nigeria’s acting president when the attack took place, reiterated the government’s commitment to fighting terror.
