Nigeria has condemned the terrorist attack on two Mosques in the city of Christchurch in New Zealand. The attacks took place during Muslim Jum’at Prayers today, Friday killing 49 Muslim worshippers and injuring many others.
In a statement today, Friday, the Minister of Foreign Affairs, Geoffrey Onyeama, through his spokesperson, George Edokpa, on Friday in Abuja, regretted the barbaric and vicious acts unleashed against innocent worshippers and expressed Nigeria’s sympathies to New Zealand.
“Nigeria stands in solidarity with New Zealand in their time of grief and fully supports the prosecution of the perpetrators of this heinous crime to the fullest extent of the law,” he said.
He condoled with the government and the people of New Zealand and prayed for God to grant the families of the victims the fortitude to bear the irreparable loss and wished the injured speedy recovery.
