Abuja, Nigeria, 05 April 2015: I wish to extend my condolences to the families of those who lost loved ones in the attack on Garissa University, and to all the people of Kenya at this sorrowful time.
There are those among us who will always find an excuse - religion, tribe, and others - to take innocent lives. These terrorists are a scourge all across Africa and the world, and we must confront them together, using all the tools at our disposal.
I want to assure the Kenyan President, Uhuru Kenyatta, and all Kenyans of Nigeria's support and prayers now and in the future.
With my deepest sympathies,
Federal Republic of Nigeria.
