Naija News had earlier reported that the aide workers were kidnapped by the Boko Haram Terrorists a month ago.
The President in a statement released through his Senior Special Assistant on Media and Publicity, Garba Shehu, sympathised with the families of the five aid workers.
Buhari prayed that God will comfort their family for their irreplaceable loss.
He promised the affected families that his administration will continue to do all it can to ensure that “every remaining vestige of Boko Haram is wiped out completely from northeastern Nigeria and that the perpetrators of this atrocity face the law.”
Buhari further condoled with the State Emergency Management Agency, Action Against Hunger, Rich International, and International Rescue Committee, whose staff have suffered this gruesome fate.
The President commended them for their continuous dedication and service to the victims of Boko Haram in northeastern Nigeria.
He assures them that security agencies in the state will work closely with their organisations to implement measures to ensure that no such kidnapping of staff occurs again.
