“The enemies of humanity will never win. Hand in hand, we will rid our land of terrorism. May God rest the souls of the dead, heal the injured, and comfort the bereaved,” it added.
The attack is believed to be the work of terrorist sect, Boko Haram which is said to have claimed 6,644 lives in 2014, overtaking the Islamic State (ISIS) which caused 6,073 deaths within the same period.
Buhari has urged the military to wipe out the sect and end its activities by December 2015.
