President Goodluck Jonathan yesterday described the killing of pupils and teachers of Government Secondary School Mamudo, Yobe State, as wicked, horrific and barbaric. He predicted that the killers will go to hell.
The President, in a statement by his Special Adviser on Media and Publicity, Dr. Reuben Abati, said his administration would not allow itself to be undermined by any group or persons.
Describing terrorists as cowards, he said: “The killing is barbaric, completely wicked. Anybody who will target innocent children for any kind of grief of emotional dyfunction will certainly go to hell.
“Mr. President wants to assure Nigerians that this kind of desperate Nigerians will be flushed out of the system.
“Mr. President is committed to the issue of the protection of lives and properties of all Nigerians and he wants to assure that the war against terrorists has been launched and will continue and the Nigerian government is determined to put an end to this menace.
“The President sympathises with the families affected and he stands by them at this moment of grief. The killing is most unfortunate most regrettable and Mr. President wants to assure Nigerians that any attempt by any group to undermine this government will be resisted.”

Senate President David Mark and House of Representatives Speaker Aminu Tambuwal last night lamented the Yobe pupils killings.
In separate statements, the lawmakers called for the apprehension of the killers.
Mark, according to a statement by his Chief Press Secretary, Paul Mumeh, said: “Even in war situations, children and women are protected.
“Killing children is akin to cutting down the future of a people. This is inhuman, barbaric and unacceptable to any right-thinking member of the society.
“For no reason, the lives of these promising children were needlessly cut down by the heartless people. This cannot be a way of life. Enough of these bloodshed.”
He added: “this is barbaric, wicked and condemnable.”
Tambuwal, in a statement by his Special Adviser on Media and Public Affairs, Malam Imam Imam, urged security agencies to fish out perpetrators of the dastardly act and bring them to justice.
He declared that no reason can be given to justify such dreadful act pointing out that the gains recorded by security agencies in their battle against terror in the country in recent weeks should be built upon in order to protect the citizens at all times.Killers’ll go to hell, says Jonathan as Mark, Tambuwal mourn
