The Chairperson of the African Union Commission, Moussa Faki Mahamat, has condemned the attack perpetrated last Thursday by elements of the Boko Haram terrorist group against civilians in a Chadian locality in the Lake Chad Basin, not far from the border with Niger.
In his statement issued yesterday, Mahamat condemned this barbaric attack, in which several people, including children, were slaughtered, with others wounded or abducted.
He offered the condolences of the African Union to the bereaved families, as well as to the Government and people of Chad, and wished a speedy recovery to the wounded.
“This despicable attack highlights the need for renewed efforts to put an end to the atrocities committed by Boko Haram in the Lake Chad Basin area,” reads the statement.
The Chairperson of the Commission reiterated the African Union’s solidarity with Chad and the other member countries of the Multinational Joint Task Force mandated to fight the Boko Haram terrorist group.
He underlined the AU’s determination to pursue its efforts to assist in mobilizing all the support required for the full success of the action taken by the countries of the region.
