President Muhammadu Buhari has condemned the alleged execution of four aid workers by terrorists in Northeastern Nigeria by Boko Haram terrorists.
The aid workers had been abducted near Damasak, Borno State, in July, and had been held despite all efforts to secure their release, till their alleged execution.
But in a statement issued on Saturday, the President said that the defeat of evil by good was inevitable, no matter the pyrrhic victory evildoers seem to win.
He expressed sadness over the claimed development and commiserated with the family and loved ones of the aid workers, who had offered themselves to serve humanity at grave risks.
“Evil will always be defeated by good at the end of the day. Whatever seeming victory evil records, eventually rebounds on the evildoer. We are resolved to beat evil in this land, and we remain unrelenting till we achieve it,” Buhari said.
He urged all insurgents once again to lay down their arms, and rejoin decent humanity.
