President Muhammadu Buhari of Nigeria in the night of Wednesday, December 12, expressed shock at the killing of at least 67 soldiers in Niger Republic by some terrorists.

The attack has also led to the disappearance of 34 people who are said to be unaccounted for.

The Nigerian president condemned the act in a statement signed by Garba Shehu, his spokesperson, saying the attack in Inates, western region of Niger Republic, is condemnable.

Buhari said he was sad over what he called the heinous and despicable attack by terrorists that reportedly crossed in from neighboring Mali.

The Nigerian president said he was solidly behind his Nigerien counterpart at this trying time of the latter’s country.

President Buhari said his administration was further moved to continue working closely with countries neighbouring the Sahel and the Sahara, as well as international partners, to defeat the roving terrorists creating havoc in the sub region.

”On behalf of myself, the government and people of Nigeria, I send our deepest condolences to the families of the bereaved, the government and the people of Niger Republic following this dastardly attack,” the president said.
