Buhari condoles Egypt on Al Rawdah mosque killings


Abuja, Nigeria, November 25 (Infosplusgabon) - Nigeria’s President, Muhammadu Buhari, has sent his condolences to the government and people of Egypt over the attacks on the Al Rawdah mosque, roughly 40km west of the North Sinai, capital of Al Arish.


Egypt’s President Abdul Fattah Al Sisi has vowed to respond forcefully after attackers killed at least 235 worshippers in the packed mosque. He has declared three days of mourning, vowing to “respond with brutal force. The army and police will avenge our martyrs and return security and stability with force in the coming short period.”


A statement, released on Saturday by Presidential Spokesman, Malam Garba Shehu, states: “President Buhari condemns the dastardly act on innocent worshippers, which further reinforces the position that terrorism has no relationship or respect for any religion, and should be visited with the full wrath of the law.


“The president reiterates that the workable panacea to such mindless and irresponsible attacks on citizens would be a global joint action that continually shares intelligence, simulates scenarios and regularly updates on both local and international threats.


“President Buhari prays that the almighty God will receive the souls of the departed, and comfort the families of those directly affected.”
