Acting President Yemi Osinbajo on Tuesday condemned the terrorist attack on people in Manchester, United Kingdom, on Monday, May 22, 2017.

In a statement issued by the Senior Special Assistant to the President on Media and Publicity, Mr. Akande, Osinbajo expressed condolences and solidarity with the government and people of the United Kingdom in this period of grief.

Describing the attack as a dastardly act and heinous crime, the Acting President assured Prime Minister Theresa May that the prayers and thoughts of Nigerians are with the British people as they mourn the victims, many of the them being young people.

The statement said the Acting President is confident that light of the civilised world would always prevail against the darkness of depravity.

“He trusts that Britons and citizens of other nations across the world will continue to show resilience and courage in the wake of such terrorist crimes,” the statement said.

He prayed that almighty God would comfort the bereaved families, and wished a speedy recovery for the injured.
