Reno Omokri, former aide to ex-president Goodluck has reacted to President Muhammadu Buhari’s response to Boko Haram suicide bombings in Mandarari community in Borno State.
Buhari on Monday night expressed sadness over the attack and sent his condolences to victims of the Borno attack.
The president wrote “I commiserate with the families of the victims of yesterday’s Viewing Center bomb blasts in Mandarari, Konduga LGA of Borno State.
