BEVERLY HILLS, March 22, (THEWILL) – President Muhammadu Buhari has condemned Wednesday’s terrorist attack near the United Kingdom Parliament Building at Westminster, London.
The President, who sympathized with the British Prime Minister, Theresa May, assured her that the government and people of Nigeria “stand with Britons at this sad and trying moment in their country.”
In a statement by Femi Adesina, Special Adviser to the President on Media and Publicity, President Buhari declared that “terror attack anywhere in the world is condemnable,” adding that the whole world must join hands to defeat the perpetrators of terrorism.
He prayed that God Almighty will comfort the grieving families and heal the injured.
THEWILL recalls that a woman died in central London while a police officer was also stabbed in the nearby houses of parliament by an attacker, who was shot by police.
The attacker struck several pedestrians as he drove a car across the bridge, before crashing it into railings.
May was however ushered into a silver Jaguar car as what sounded like gunfire rang out at parliament during the incident.
