President Muhammadu Buhari has condemned the recent murder of five staff of humanitarian agencies in Borno State, who were kidnapped by Boko Haram Terrorists a month ago.
President Buhari, in a statement issued on Wednesday night by his media aide, Garba Shehu, sympathised with the families of the five aid workers.

The President, who prayed that God will comfort them for their irreplaceable loss, assured the families that his government will continue to do all it can to ensure that every remaining vestige of Boko Haram is wiped out completely from northeastern Nigeria and that the perpetrators of this atrocity face the law.
President Buhari also commiserated with the State Emergency Management Agency, Action Against Hunger, Rich International, and International Rescue Committee, whose staff have suffered this gruesome fate.
Buhari, who thanked them for their continued dedication and service to the victims of Boko Haram in northeastern Nigeria, assured them that security agencies in the state will work closely with their organisations to implement measures to ensure that no such kidnapping of staff occurs again.
