President Muhammadu Buhari has boasted that his administration will destroy members of the Boko Haram sect.
He said it was wrong for any individual or group to be killing innocent people and destroying properties under the guise of doing it for God.
Buhari spoke while hosting some entertainers of the Northern Nigerian extraction, Kannywood, to a dinner at the Presidential Villa, Abuja on Thursday evening.
The President who spoke in the Hausa language said the Federal Government would not allow any group hiding under religion to unleash terror on innocent citizens.
He said those who are killing in the name of God were either ignorant or they don’t believe in God.
He said, “It is totally wrong for any believer in God to kill innocent people either in the mosque, church or the marketplace.
“You cannot be shouting Allahu Akbar (Allah is Great), Allahu Akbar, and be killing innocent citizens and destroying properties all in the name of God.
“It is either you don’t know what you are saying or you don’t even believe in the existence of God Almighty.
“God has nothing to do with injustice.
“So, now we are confronting them and by the grace of God we will destroy them.”
