Nigeria – Terrorist attacks in Gombe (February 2, 2015)

France condemns the attacks that have been carried out in recent days in the city of Gombe.

We extend our condolences to the victims’ families. The perpetrators must be brought to justice.

By targeting a rally in support of a candidate for the presidential election, the perpetrators of these heinous acts again demonstrated their rejection of democracy.

France lends its support to the Nigerian authorities and people in their fight against terrorism. It supports the holding of free, transparent and peaceful elections to which the candidates have committed themselves.
