President Muhammadu Buhari has described those who shout “Allah is great’ before killing innocent people as mentally deranged.
Speaking through the Vice President, Yemi Osinbajo, at the launch of the revised National Counter Terrorism Strategy, NACTEST, in Abuja, the President said “it is either they do not know the meaning of those words or they are simply deranged.”
The President noted that “these enemies (Boko Haram) are essentially an insane nuisance because they revel in cowardly attacks.”
Explaining that the war against terrorism was unconventional, the President disclosed that his government will change its strategy in a bid to win the war against insurgents.
“Therefore as we think through our strategy we must remember that to permanently win the physical battle, we must win the battle of the minds of even the most impressionable young men who sign up to join Boko Haram and other violent extremist groups.
“We must understand that terrorism is essentially a psychological warfare and as such is psychologically sophisticated and we must educate the youth through the leadership of our faith that neither Islam nor any other religion that we know endorses the slaughter of anyone.
“In the past few years our nation faced the threat of terrorism characterized by mindless killing of our people including children.”
