“I commiserate with the latest victims of this despicable orgy of violence in Borno; I equally implore them to bear in mind that this situation won’t last forever,’’ he said.
He expressed shock at what he described as “mindless attacks’’ by Boko Haram on Maiduguri, Konduga and Monguno in Borno with more than 40 000 more refugees reportedly joining the ranks of the internally displaced persons.
