Faure condemns the Abuja attacks

President Faure Gnassingbé sent a condolence message to his counterpart in Nigeria, Goodluck Jonathan, on Friday, after the attack that hit the capital Abuja.A car packed with explosives crashed into the main UN building killing at least 18 people in what is one of the deadliest attacks against the UN for decades. Boko Haram, an Islamist group has claimed responsibility for the attack.

The president of Togo has denounced the "heinous act and cowardly attack against the brotherly people of Nigeria and against the United Nations staff." 

Nigeria, the most populous country in Africa with 150 million inhabitants, is experiencing strong religious and ethnic tensions. The country is deeply divided between the Christian south and Muslim north, where a dozen states follow the sharia, Islamic law.
