This outburst is coming after the President of France, Emmanuel Macron was spotted at the burial rites of a police officer that died during a terrorist attack.
Meanwhile, in Nigeria, President Muhammdu Buhari was in Lagos to commission the Ikeja Bus Terminal and also attended a birthday party of the All Progressives Congress national leader, Bola Tinubu while 11 of Nigerian soldiers killed during an attack in Kaduna were being buried.
It will be recalled that the soldiers were killed at their post by the armed persons in Brinin Gwari Local Government Area, allegedly as a reprisal for the killing of some of the gunmen in a previous effort by the army.
