Nigerian leader offers condolences to Pakistan over school attack

ABUJA, Dec. 18 (Xinhua) -- Nigerian President Goodluck Jonathan on Thursday offered condolences on behalf of Nigeria to the government and people of Pakistan on Tuesday's terrorist attack at a army-run public school in Pakistan's northwestern provincial capital of Peshawar, which left 141 killed.

The Nigerian leader assured Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif and the people of Pakistan that Nigeria stands in full solidarity with them as they mourn the victims of the heinous attack and strive to give succor to the injured and the bereaved, a statement by his office said.

"The president wholly condemns the brutal, savage, senseless and totally unjustifiable killing of innocent students and staff during the attack," the statement added.

Jonathan, while wishing the injured victims a speedy recovery, called for an urgent action toward the formation of more effective regional, continental and global alliances against insurgency and violent extremism which, he said, the atrocity in Peshawar represents.

The 141 people, mostly children, were killed by Taliban terrorists who stormed their school in one of the worst terror attacks ever in the world.
