Vice President Yemi Osinbajo joined his principal, Muhammadu Buhari, on Tuesday, January 21 on the latter's declaration that his administration would make Boko Haram pay for the killing Rev Lawal Andimi, a chairman of the Christian Association of Nigeria (CAN).
Osinbajo said he was lost for the right words to use in describing the killing of Andimi, who was kidnapped by the terrorists in Adamawa.
"Words fail me as I share my heartfelt sympathy with the family of Rev Lawal Andimi.
The senseless killing of the bishop despite ongoing efforts to secure his freedom further reiterates the callous and irrational nature of the Boko Haram terrorists," he said.
Osinbajo described Andimi as a true leader and pillar of his church and community adding that he was an inspiration to him and others.
Just like the president has said in his statement, we remain committed in our mission to defeat these terrorists. And we shall, as we relentlessly work towards a safer Nigeria for us all," he added.
