Norway condemns Boko Haram attacks

01 December 2014, 21:30

Abuja - Norway Minister of Foreign Affairs, Børge Brende, expressed concern at the ongoing terror in Nigeria.

"I am deeply concerned about developments in Nigeria. The terrorist attacks on civilian targets in recent days are shocking and must be condemned in the strongest possible terms,’ said Brende in a statement.

The sentiments follow reports the death toll following the attack by suicide bombers and gunmen on the central mosque in Kano during Friday’s prayers has now risen to over 120, and an even greater number of people have been injured.

"The attack showed a complete lack of human compassion and respect for life," Brende said.

According to his office, since 2009, around 10 000 civilians have lost their lives in attacks by Islamist militants, the Boko Haram, who are spreading fear and suffering in Nigeria and its neighbouring countries.

"I sincerely hope that the Nigerian authorities will succeed in combating terrorism and strengthening respect for human rights throughout the country. I would like to convey my deepest sympathy to all those who have lost loved ones in these attacks,’ said Brende.
