Eto'o sympathises with Yola, Kano terror victims

19 November 2015, 16:09

Lagos - Football star Samuel Eto'o has sent his heartfelt condolence to the victims of the Boko Haram attacks in Adamawa and Kano states.

The former skipper of the Cameroonian national team posted on his Facebook page his message to the victims.


At least 34 people were killed and another 80 wounded in Yola, a town packed with refugees from Nigeria’s Islamic uprising, emergency officials said Wednesday.

Later Wednesday, two more suicide bombers killed at least 15 people in the northern city of Kano and injured 53, according to police. Nigeria’s National Emergency Management Agency said more than 100 were wounded.

The blasts were the latest by Boko Haram, Nigeria’s home-grown extremists whose 6-year insurgency has killed 20 000 and forced 2.3 million to flee their homes.

Boko Haram was named Wednesday as the world’s most deadly extremist group in the Global Terrorism Index. Deaths attributed to Boko Haram increased by 317 percent in 2014 to 6 644 compared to 6 073 blamed on the Islamic State group. Boko Haram pledged allegiance to IS in March and calls itself that group’s West Africa Province.
