The chairman and national coordinator of the Nigeria’s ruling All Progressives Congress (APC) Scandinavia Chapter Ayoola Lawal has strongly condemned Friday’s coordinated extremist attacks in Paris, France  and called on world leaders to urgently look for peace in the wake of senseless killings across continents.
In a statement released in Stockholm, Sweden over the weekend, Mr. Lawal said “if the extremists can open fire on restaurants, concert venues, cafes and bars in popular spots, it means nobody and nowhere is safe as they kill and spread fear across the globe.”

Offering condolences to families of the victims, he noted that the trauma created in Paris could be likened to 9/11 because it involved not just the people of France but different nationalities. “It is simply an atrocity against humanity, ” he added.

“One can hardly make sense out of the  horrible killings and unspeakable  fear spreading when the European countries are still struggling to tackle the problem of absorbing the  displaced men, women and children of Syria. I called on the world leaders to look for peace in the wake of this awful atrocities.

“The Nigeria Embassy in France should step up action to see that Nigerians in Paris are safe.”
