President Muhammadu Buhari has sympathised with Nigerien President Mahamadou Issoufou over the killing of 137 Nigeriens by Boko Haram and Islam in West Africa, ISWA.

This contained in a statement by the President’s Senior Special Assistant on Media and Publicity, Garba Shehu, on Tuesday in Abuja.

The statement said the President called his Nigerien counterpart on phone to sympathize with him and citizens of the neighbouring country over terrorist attacks.

While condemning the terrorist’s attacks, Mr Buhari said Nigeria will continue to stand with all her neighbours in the fight against terrorism.

“Our deepest and heartfelt condolences to the families of victims and people of Niger Republic. Nigeria stands with all her neighbours in the fight against terrorism,” he said.
