Killers Of Yobe Students Will Rot In Hell, says President Jonathan  

July 8, 2013

Nigerians have continued to express outrage over the offensive killing of 42 students of Government Secondary School in Mamudo, Yobe, with many describing the act as barbaric, horrendous and ignoble.

This is just as the state Commissioner for Education, Alhaji Mohammed Lamin, confirmed to Governor Ibrahim Gaidam that two more students later died at Potiskum General Hospital, adding that a resident of Mamudo, who was traced to his home, was also killed shortly after the attack on the school.

President Goodluck Jonathan, reacting to the killing, said any person who targeted innocent children as a result of emotional dysfunction would certainly burn in hell.

Speaking through his Special Adviser on Media and Publicity, Dr Reuben Abati, on Sunday, President Jonathan said the war on terror would continue until the dastardly acts of the group were brought to an end.

According to the presidential spokesman, “the killing is barbaric and completely wicked,” adding that “anybody who will target innocent children for any kind of grief or emotional dysfunction will certainly go to hell.”

Abati said President Jonathan sympathised with the families affected and stood by them at the moment of grief, adding that “the killing is most unfortunate and regrettable.”
