President Goodluck Jonathan on Thursday commiserated with the government and people of Kenya as well the families of those who died in the terrorist attack on the Garissa University College in Kenya.
In a statement by his spokesman, Reuben Abati, the President condemned what he called deliberate targeting of innocent persons, schools and other soft targets by terrorists.
He said such barbaric acts of violence ought to have no place in any civilised society.
The statement added, “The President assures President Uhuru Kenyatta and the brotherly people of Kenya that Nigeria stands in full solidarity with them as they come to grips once again with the aftermath of another heinous terrorist attack on their country.
“Nigeria, President Jonathan affirms, will continue to work with Kenya, other African countries and the international community to rid the world of all terrorist groups.
“The President believes that the attack on the Kenyan University and other similar atrocities across the world must strengthen and solidify the resolve of the global community to take more urgent and co-ordinated actions to speedily defeat the agents of global terror.”
