President Buhari has received with deep sadness and regret, the
accidental bombing of a civilian community in Rann, Borno State, by
the Nigerian Air Force, engaged in the final phase of mopping up
insurgents in the North-east.
At least 120 people were wounded and 52 killed in the aerial bombing
including ten humanitarian Aid workers with Red Cross and MSF
President Buhari condoles with families of the dead, wishes the
wounded divine succour, leading to full recovery, and sympathizes
with the Borno State government.
The President pledges federal help for the state government in
attending to "this regrettable operational mistake," and pleads for
calm, even as he prays God to grant repose to the souls of the dead.
