Buhari condoles Egypt over attacks on mosque

President Muhammadu Buhari has condoled the government and people of Egypt over ‘the heartless attacks" on a mosque in North Sinai that left many dead after prayers on Friday.


The president’s condolence was contained in a statement by his Senior Special Assistant on Media and Publicity, Malam Garba Shehu.


Buhari condemned the dastardly act on innocent worshippers, saying it further reinforced the position that terrorism has no relationship or respect for any religion, and should be visited with the full wrath of the law.

He reiterated 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 prayed that the almighty God receive the souls of the departed, and comfort the families of those directly affected.
