President Muhammadu Buhari has sent his condolences to the government and people of Egypt over the attacks on a mosque in North Sinai that left many dead after prayers on Friday.
PREMIUM TIMES reported the explosion and subsequent attack by armed persons on the mosque, killing at least 85 people during the Friday Jumat prayers.
“President Buhari condemns the dastardly act on innocent worshippers, which further reinforces the position that terrorism has no relationship or respect for any religion, and should be visited with the full wrath of the law,” his spokesperson, Garba Shehu, said.
“The president reiterates that the workable panacea to such mindless and irresponsible attacks on citizens would be a global joint action that continually shares intelligence, simulates scenarios and regularly updates on both local and international threats.
“President Buhari prays that the almighty God will receive the souls of the departed, and comfort the families of those directly affected.”
