Abuja - President Muhammadu Buhari has called for an intensification of international cooperation against all known terrorist organisations as well as their collaborators and sponsors.

The call came this past weekend after terrorist attacks on a hotel in Bamako, the Mali capital.

Buhari, leader of the country that has lost thousands of people to the terror perpetrated by the Boko Haram terror group, condemned the siege on the fellow West African country.

More than 20 people were killed following an attack at a hotel in Bamako.

“The President also extends heartfelt condolences to the governments and people of China, Russia, the United States and Belgium whose nationals sadly lost their lives in the heinous and callous attack,” Buhari’s spokesperson, Femi Adesina.

Buhari assured President Ibrahim Boubacar Keita and the people of Mali of the full support and solidarity of the Federal Government and people of Nigeria as they mourned those who lost their lives in the attack and strived to bring the surviving perpetrators to justice.”

Buhari proposed concerted efforts to tackle terror.

“The President reaffirms that Nigeria, under his leadership, remains committed to deploying all necessary resources and working with friendly nations, regional, continental and global organisations to speedily overcome the continuing threat of terrorism to world peace and security,” his spokesperson said.
