The President-elect, Muhammadu Buhari, has condoled with Kenya over last week’s terrorist attack on a University in which 148 people were killed.
Al-Shabab militants stormed the University campus in Garissa, near Kenya’s border with Somalia, killing students and staff of the school.
“I wish to extend my condolences to the families of those who lost loved ones in the attack on Garissa University, and to all the people of Kenya at this sorrowful time,” Mr. Buhari said.
“There are those among us who will always find an excuse – religion, tribe, and others – to take innocent lives. These terrorists are a scourge all across Africa and the world, and we must confront them together, using all the tools at our disposal.
“I want to assure the Kenyan President, Uhuru Kenyatta, and all Kenyans of Nigeria’s support and prayers now and in the future.”
