President Muhammadu Buhari has formally written to the United Kingdom to express solidarity over Wednesday’s terrorist attack in London.

Five people died in the attack at the British parliament, while many more were injured.

Mr. Buhari had earlier condemned the incident.

His office said he has sent a “formal letter” to the British Prime Minister, Theresa May, on behalf of the people of Nigeria to express “my heartfelt condolences to the injured and families of the dead”.

The president said the “horrid incident underscores the threat we all live under,” adding that, “terrorism has no borders and no season”, according to a statement by his spokesperson, Femi Adesina.

The president also expressed appreciation to the British Government “for the very effective material and logistical support to Nigeria” in the fight against Boko Haram.

According to the president, in spite of “isolated attacks against soft targets,” the British assistance helped in flushing “Boko Haram out of their hide-out base and severely degraded their capacity to mount a serious attack on Nigerian assets.”

        • Adele Uhuru

          Fulani and Hausa both are the biggest fraudsters in Nigeria so you know- their vile evil ways have no comparison.

          • Otile

            What is worse, they try to cover their evil ways with al-Taqiyya.

          • Adele Uhuru

            all crooks i tell you –

          • Otile

            Yet they pretend to be saints. Hear the parasites praise a coup-plotter and mass murder as mr integrity. That is integrity the foolani way.

          • Otile

            What is worse, they try to cover their evil ways with al-Taqiyya

          • Otile

          Honest president my foot. Look are what a certificate forger has done to Nigeria in a space of 19 moons, shame. Why is a parasitical desert donkey like you proud of Fulani fraudsters like Babachir, Mamman Daura, Abba Kyari & co? Mutane barayi banza.

          This man everything is not about tribe. You should be ashamed of certain things. What buhari is doing now should be condemned by everyone. Try to be a little bit reasonable please.

        • aboki

          Mallam imagine somebody is calling you a parasite in your own country its baffling.
          Nigeria has 36 States and Abuja presently as defined in the present Constitution.
          Mallam please don’t waste your data bundle on these people as they are SHAMELESS and UNGRATEFUL PEOPLE.
          There millions of Southerners living comfortable in Northern Nigeria with their BROTHERS and SISTERS in that domain.
          You can find more IGBO in diaspora especially NORTHERN NIGERIA then in the Eastern part of Nigeria.
          Don’t mind those WAILING WAILERS because they are in disarray at all lavels.
          The have no respect to Elders and constituted authority. Imagine FFK is one of their HEROES despited mockery he made on DIM THE IKEMBA NWEWI widow.
          Mallam don’t be intimidated by those uncultured people!

  • Okokondem

    You gotta be kidding me! This man can hardly empathize with victims of the rampaging Fulani herdsmen not until day sometimes weeks of prodding. Each time you think there’s no reason to be ashamed of your country you are proven wrong. I suppose a phone call will no longer suffice.

    • Otile

      As if phone call and formal letter are not enough he may also send a delegation of consolers and professional mourners to London.

      • Alhaji

        Better, send Dambazoo and Abba Kyari to London to carry the dead’s caskets to the cemetery.

      • Haba mallam

        When an Igbo man became president he can send Biafraud protesters to stomp London and demand the more action from the PM, you creek monkey

        • Otile

          Parasite, are you proud of your certificate forger and perjurer, is that the best you can produce in Fulani land? Sharapppp, stinking desert donkey.

  • Adele Uhuru

    This man is an egg head for real, I think he should move to London ?
