April 3, 2015 – President Goodluck Jonathan extends heartfelt condolences to the government and people of Kenya and to the families of those who died on Thursday in the gruesome terrorist attack on the Garissa University College in Kenya.
At least 147 people were killed during the attack by Al-shabaab in Kenya.
In a statement, Special Adviser to the President on Media, Dr. Ruben Abati said President Jonathan utterly condemns the deliberate targeting of innocent persons, schools and other soft targets by terrorists as such atrocious, despicable and barbaric acts of violence ought to have no place in any civilized society.
The President assures President Uhuru Kenyatta and the brotherly people of Kenya that Nigeria stands in full solidarity with them as they come to grips once again with the aftermath of another heinous terrorist attack on their country.
Nigeria, President Jonathan affirms, will continue to work with Kenya, other African countries and the international community to rid the world of all terrorist groups.
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 actions to speedily defeat the agents of global terror.
