Nigeria condemns Brussels airport terrorism attack

The Nigeria’s President, Muhammadu Buhari, Tuesday joined world leaders in condemning the terrorist twin-attack on the Zaventem Airport and Maalbeek Metro Station in Brussels, respectively, reports ITRealms.

While commiserating with Prime Minister Charles Michel and Belgians over the loss of over 30 lives in the attacks, President Buhari said the attack brings to the fore the essence of reinforcing corporation against terrorism.

The President assured Prime Minister Michel and the people of Belgium that having suffered the horror and anguish of incessant terrorist attacks over several years, Nigeria stands in full solidarity with them on this day of national pain and trauma.

Special Adviser to the President on Media and Publicity, Mr. Femi Adesina, in a press statement made available to ITRealms, quoted President Buhari as saying he believes that the appalling attack on Brussels reinforces the need for greater international cooperation to effectively confront and destroy global terrorism and its perpetrators.

He further assured the global community that under his leadership, Nigeria will continue to work with other countries of the world to ensure that terrorism never triumphs over free, peaceful and law-abiding nations and people of the world.

Buhari expressed sympathy with families of over 100 persons injured in the attacks and wishing them a speedy recovery.

Meanwhile, CNN reports that surveillance footage captured some three men, among them a man wearing light-colored clothes with a hat, pushing a baggage cart through the airport.

ISIS has since claimed responsibility for the coordinated attacks, but authorities said it's too soon to say for sure whether the terror group was behind the blasts.

So far, police have released photos of three men they say are suspects tied to the airport attack, standing side-by-side.

Police say they are looking for the man on the right in connection with the Brussels attack.

Two of the men, wearing black in surveillance images, are believed to be suicide bombers who died in the explosions in the airport's departure lounge.
