Nigeria: We Must Take Battle to Terrorists, President Buhari Tells Global Community

President Muhammadu Buhari says the global community must take the battle to terrorists whoever and wherever they are.

This, according to him, requires commitment, sacrifice, resources, collaboration and a realization that no country is immune to terrorism as terrorists do not respect national boundaries, race, colour, religion or creed.

President Buhari was speaking in Eldoret, Kenya, yesterday at a memorial service in honour of Kenyan soldiers who were killed by Al-Shabaab in Somalia recently.

"... This requires commitment, sacrifice, resources, collaboration and above all a realization that no country is immune to the scourge, as terrorists do not respect national boundaries, race, colour, religion or creed," he said.

Buhari who is on a three-day state visit to Kenya, attended the memorial service in the company of his host, President Uhuru Kenyatta and President Hassan Mohamoud of Somalia.

The president also urged the global community resolve to act with more determination and vigour against radicalisation and extremist ideologies which encourage terrorism.
