The All Progressives Congress (APC) has strongly condemned Thursday’s
terrorist attack that left 147 people dead at the Garissa University
College in Kenya, calling it dastardly and unjustifiable.
In a statement issued in Lagos on Friday by its National Publicity
Secretary, Alhaji Lai Mohammed, the party described the Somali terror
group Al-Shabaab, which claimed responsibility for the killings, as a
bunch of cowardly extremists who have no place in a decent society.
”Nothing can justify such a deadly and senseless attack on innocent
and defenceless citizens, and those who planned and executed the
heinous killings in Kenya stand condemned globally.
”Terrorism has become a global scourge, and any terrorist attack
anywhere is a terrorist attack everywhere. Therefore, terrorists will
not find any hiding place,” it said.
APC expressed its deepest condolences to the government and people of
Kenya, and prayed that the families of the victims will find succour
while wishing those injured in the attacks a speedy recovery.
