Nigeria condoles with U.S. Govt. over Oct. 1 massacre

The Ministry of Foreign Affairs in Nigeria has described the Sunday shooting in Las Vegas, Nevada as “senseless.

The Ministry of Foreign Affairs, Mr Geoffrey Onyeama in a statement by his Spokesperson Dr Tope Elias-Fatile on Tuesday in Abuja described the Sunday shooting as “senseless.

“This dastardly attack that led to the death of 59 persons and left 527 others injured has been reported as the deadliest shooting by a lone man in modern U.S. history.

“Truly, it was an act of evil. Nigeria commends the Las Vegas Metropolitan Police Department and others for their swift intervention by curtailing the incident, which would have claimed more lives.

“Nigerian Government stands with the rest of the world in condemning, in the strongest terms, the killing of innocent people who have been deprived of their fundamental right to life.”

He reiterated government’s conviction that no cause could justify taking innocent lives.

He added that “the Federal Government commiserates with the families of the victims and prays that Almighty God grants them the fortitude to bear the irreparable loss.

“The Nigerian government also prays for quick recovery of the wounded.

“During this sober moment of tragedy and horror, Nigeria wishes to re-affirm its continued solidarity with the government and good people of the U.S.”
