Jonathan denounces Kenya terror attack

03 April 2015, 08:26Augustine Osayande

Abuja - President Goodluck Jonathan has condemned the terrorist attack on Garissa University College in Kenya. 

His spokesman, Reuben Abati, said Jonathan condemned the deliberate targeting of innocent persons, schools and other soft targets by terrorists.

At least 70 people were killed on Thursday when Al Shabaab gunmen attacked the college in Kenya.

Jonathan said such atrocious, despicable and barbaric acts of violence ought to have no  place in any  civilized society.

The President extended his condolences to the government and people of Kenya and to the families of those who died today in the gruesome terrorist attack on the Garissa University College in Kenya.

Abati added Jonathan assured President Uhuru Kenyatta and the people of Kenya that Nigeria stood in full solidarity with them as they come to grips once again with the aftermath of another terrorist attack on their country. 

“President Jonathan affirms that Nigeria will continue to work with Kenya, other African countries and the international community to rid the world of all terrorist groups,” Abati said. 

He said the President believes that the attack on the Kenyan University and other similar atrocities across the world must strengthen and solidify the resolve of the global community to take more urgent and co-ordinated action to speedily defeat the agents of global terror. 

Nigeria itself has been on the receiving end of terror with the Islamic militant Boko Haram killing thousands of people during a reign of terror dating back to 2009.
