Jonathan writes British, Italian Prime Ministers over killing of citizens – The Nation

Further to his statement last Thursday condemning the killing of Chris McManus, a British citizen and Franco Lamorina, an Italian, by their Boko Haram captors in Sokoto State, President Goodluck Ebele Jonathan on Saturday formally commiserated with the families, people and governments of the two affected countries.
In two separate letters of condolence to David Cameron and Mario Monti, the Prime Ministers of Britain and Italy respectively, President Jonathan said that the hearts of the people and government of Nigeria go out to the members of the immediate families of the victims in their moment of grief. He prayed that “Almighty God imbues them with the fortitude to cope with this painful tragedy.”
President Jonathan according to a statement by his spokesman, Dr Reuben Abati, also assured the leaders of both countries that “the Nigerian Government remains resolutely committed to facing up squarely to the challenge of terrorism on our shores and in the international community.”
While describing as “invaluable” the cooperation the Nigerian Government had enjoyed from both Prime Ministers in the fight against terrorism in the country, the President assured that Nigeria will “ join forces with the rest of the world in frontally confronting the menace of terrorism in all ramifications,”.
The special relations and strong ties that exist among the three nations according to President Jonathan “can only grow deeper and stronger.”
