Nigerian President Muhammadu Buhari has condemned the deadly terrorist attack on a hotel and office complex in Nairobi.

In a condolence message issued in Abuja, Nigeria’s capital on Wednesday, the Nigerian leader commiserated with the government and people of Kenya, describing the attack as wicked, cruel and dastardly by evil people.

Buhari assured Kenyan President Uhuru Kenyatta that the thoughts of the people of Nigeria are with Kenyans at this moment of their national grief.

Buhari called on well-meaning members of the international community to rally round Kenyans to overcome the scourge of terrorism “because any terrorist attack on one country is an attack on all countries.”

The number of people killed when terrorists struck an upscale hotel and business complex in Nairobi on Tuesday has risen to 21, the police said on Wednesday night.

The Somalia-based terrorist group al-Shabab has claimed responsibility for the attack.

The group has been targeting Kenya-Somalia border areas and killing innocent citizens since Kenyan soldiers entered Somalia in 2011 to secure the two countries’ shared border. Enditem
