Buhari condemns terrorist attack on Cote d’Ivoire

15 March 2016, 20:35

Abuja - President Muhammadu Buhari has “unreservedly condemned Sunday’s terrorist attack on the Grand Bassam Resort in Cote D’Ivoire”, his office said Monday.

Al Qaeda’s North African arm on Sunday killed 16 people at resort hotels in the country.

A statement issued by presidential spokesperson, Femi Adesina, said Buhari conveyed his message in a telephone call to Ivorian president, Alassane Ouattara, after the attack.

“President Buhari conveyed the sympathy of the Federal Government and people of Nigeria to the people of Cote D’Ivoire as they mourn their compatriots and foreign visitors who lost their lives in the attack,” the statement said.

“The president assured his Ivorian counterpart of Nigeria’s full solidarity and support as his country grapples with the consequences of the heinous attack and strives to overcome the new security challenges posed by the terrorist incursion.”

Buhari says terrorism now transcends all national boundaries, and restated his call for greater international cooperation against terrorists and their sponsors.

“They have attacked a hotel in Mali, leaving 21 people dead. They killed over 130 people in attacks in Paris and they murdered 28 persons in Burkina Faso.

“Terrorism does not respect territorial boundaries again. That is why the world has to come together, present a common front and deal with these merchants of evil,” President Buhari said.

President Ouattara thanked President Buhari for Nigeria’s sympathy and solidarity.
