The Federal Government has asked Nigerians to continually remain united in their opposition to Boko Haram and the hatred for decency that the infamous group stands for.
The Presidency in a statement by Senior Special Assistant to the President on Media and Publicity, Mr Garba Shehu, however, assured that the Security Forces will continually work to ensure that those taken hostage by the insurgents will be returned safely to their families.
He added that the Government has condemned some recent acts of terror, stressing that the motives by the insurgents to portray a message of religion only hinges on the fact that they want Nigerians to see their beliefs as a reason to turn against one another.
Mr Shehu restated that the Federal Government will never tolerate religious intolerance, and will continually show support for the freedom to practice whichever belief they wish.
He added that “Nigerians must continue to be united in ensuring that they do not subscribe to the terrorists’ message of division.
