President Goodluck Jonathan has condemned the massacre more than 40 persons at a secondary school in Yobe, telling the killers that they would go to hell.
Jonathan, who spoke through the Special Adviser on Media and Publicity, Dr. Reuben Abati, said that his administration will not be undermined by any group or persons.
According to him, any person who target innocent children as a result of emotional dyfunction will certainly burn in hell.
He sympathized with the affected families as he assured that the war against terror is still very much on course.
Jonathan was optimistic that his administration will see the end of terror in the country.
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.”
The attackers, who stormed the boarding school about 3 a.m. on Saturday, were said to have set fire on the hostels which burned the victims alive as they were asleep.
The students that managed to escape from the fire were reportedly shot by the attackers.
Some of the injured students in critical conditions are being treated in hospitals in the state for varying degrees of burns.
