The European Union has condemned Wednesday’s attack on a mosque in Borno which claimed no fewer than 22 lives and injured many.
This condemnation is contained in a statement issued by European Union Delegation and EU Heads of Mission in Nigeria.
It decried the fact that the attack was carried out on innocent worshippers, and condoled families of victims and the injured.
The EU reaffirmed its full support to the Federal Government and the Nigerian people in the ongoing fight against terrorism.
It said that insurgency featured prominently at the ongoing EU-Nigeria Joint Ministerial meeting in Brussels.
“The EU again confirms its full solidarity with the Nigerian government and people in their fight against terrorism in all its forms.
“This was reaffirmed to President Muhammadu Buhari when he met with EU leaders in February.
“It was a major topic for discussion in the EU-Nigeria joint Ministerial meeting this week in Brussels,” it said. (NAN)
