President Goodluck Jonathan has commiserated with the government and people of Kenya and to the families of those who died today in the barbaric attack by Al-Shabaab terrorists at the Garissa University College in Kenya.

“President Jonathan utterly condemns the deliberate targeting of innocent persons, schools and other soft targets by terrorists as such atrocious, despicable and barbaric acts of violence ought to have no place in any civilized society,” a statement by Special Adviser on Media & Publicity, Reuben Abati said.

147 people had been killed in the attack, responsibility for which was claimed by Somalia-based Al-Shabaab militant group. Authorities also killed four terrorists while repelling the attack.

“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.”

Jonathan further affirmed that Nigeria will continue to work with Kenya, other African countries and the international community to rid the world of terrorism.

He said 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 end insurgency and defeat the agents of terror.
