President Buhari pays Condolence as 235 Die in Egypt’s Deadliest Attack



President Buhari pays Condolence as 235 Die in Egypt's Deadliest Attack - BellaNaijaPresident Muhammadu Buhari has condoled with the people of Egypt over the attacks on a mosque in North Sinai that left many dead after prayers on Friday.

According to Guardian, at least 235 people have lost their lives after militants staged an attack.

Just at the closing of Friday prayers was when a bomb went off in the mosque. A military source who spoke to Guardian said militants in 4 off-road vehicles then approached and opened fire on worshipers.

Witnesses say the gunmen numbered up to 20, and at least 130 people were reported to be injured.

Buhari’s condolence message was made in a statement by his Senior Special Assistant on Media and Publicity, Garba Shehu, in Abuja on Friday.

The president condemned the dastardly act on innocent worshippers, saying that the incident had further reinforced the position that terrorism had 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 would receive the souls of the departed and comfort the families of those directly affected.

    Shame! You see the kind of president you have, thousands have been killed by Boko Haram and Herdsmen, none of these countries, including Egypt have commiserated with Nigeria, now the reverse is the case. He wants cheap international recognition and his citizens welfare doesn’t concern him. You are leaving office come 2019

    Its only God that will punish this useless president Nigeria unfortunately has. He has yet to pay condolences to the women who drowned on their way to Italy, or the people who have been killed by those bloodthirsty Fulani herdsman or the people that have been killed by Boko haram, or the Nigerians that get killed while travelling on the death traps called Nigerian roads. I could go on and on. This man is so useless. smh
