President Muhammadu Buhari has described the early Tuesday morning suicide bomb blast that killed 50 people in a mosque in Mubi, Adamawa State as “very cruel and dastardly.”
Commiserating with families of the dead, President Buhari assured that government will do everything required to secure the state from Boko Haram.
He urged the entire north-east to be more vigilant by reporting suspicious persons amd movement to security agencies in order to avert further attacks on soft targets.
President Buhari also directed the Inspector-General of Police, Ibrahim Idris, to deploy more police personnel to prevent further attacks by armed bandits in Zamfara State.
Noting the current moves by the IGP to review police personnel and strategy in the state, the president directed him to visit the state and report back his findings about the deadly attacks.
The directives followed recent killings and wanton destruction carried out by unknown gunmen on communities in Shinkafi and Maradun Local Government Areas of the state.

President Buhari prayed that God would console the bereaved families in the Adamawa and Zamfara incidents, heal the injured, and grant rest to the souls of the departed.
The Boko Hram terrorist organisation has mounted a rigorous suicide missions since the military displaced and diffused the mujahedeen from the Zambisa forest.
To many, the spate of suicide attacks since 2016 has made whatever military victory Buhari has achieved in the war on terror pale into insignificance.
