New Zealand killings wrong – Nana Addo
President Nana Akufo-Addo has condemned the bloody shooting incident at two mosques in New Zealand describing it ”as a stark reminder of the threat terrorism poses to all the peoples of the world”.
In a Facebook post on Saturday, 16 March 2019, Ghana’s President sympathized with the bereaved families and the government of New Zealand as he urged the world to unite and fight terrorism.
“I join the rest of the world in condemning the terror attack in New Zealand, and sympathize with the families of the dead and wounded, and with the government of Prime Minister Jacinda Arden. The attack is a stark reminder of the threat terrorism poses to all the peoples of the world. We must stand up together against all atrocities that are motivated by a twisted understanding of religion or ideology,” the president stated in the post.
Meanwhile, the prime suspect, Brenton Tarrant, 28, an Australian, has been remanded in custody by a court and will appear again on 5 April 2019.
Two other suspects have also been arrested by police in relation to the shooting incident.
