Munich Shooting: Buhari offers to help Germany fight terrorism

President Muhammadu Buhari

President Buhari has offered to help Germany in anyway, fight terrorism.

This is coming on the heels of reports that an 18-year-old German-Iranian gunman opened fire in a busy shopping mall in Munich on Friday, July 22, 2016, killing at least nine people.

Buhari also expressed shock at the incident that has been condemned by leaders across the globe.

The Special Adviser on Media and Publicity, Femi Adesina, in a statement, said the President sent his condolences to the people and Government of Germany.

The statement also said “On behalf of the Federal Republic of Nigeria, President Buhari sends his most sincere condolences to the families and friends of victims of the barbaric act.

“The President says it is quite unfortunate and inconceivable that the forces of evil do not relent on their activities, but expresses confidence that with the unanimity of purpose from all forces around the world, the workers and perpetrators of these evil acts will not prevail.

“The President also assures the people of Germany that Nigerians as a people are standing with them at this time and are ready to assist in any way to defeat the planners and executors of such crimes.”

Meanwhile, supporters of ISIS celebrated the shooting rampage in a shopping mall in the southern German city of Munich on social media.
