President Muhammadu Buhari has assured President Roch Marc Kabore and the people of Burkina Faso of Nigeria’s solidarity and support as they grapple with the aftermath of Friday night’s terrorist attack on Ouagadougou.
In a telephone call to President Kabore on Saturday, President Buhari expressed shock at the attack on the Splendid Hotel in Ouagadougou in which 26 persons were reportedly killed and a further 56 injured.
“Accept my sympathy over what happened in your country.
“I am however glad to hear that your forces have rallied, and things are now under control,” President Buhari told President Kabore.
He assured him that Nigeria will continue to work with Burkina Faso, other members of the Economic Community of West African States, the African Union and other peace-loving nations of the world to overcome the scourge of international terrorism.
