Alfano: "Strong condemnation of the evil assassination of Ozubulo"

Alfano: “I strongly condemn the vicious attack today against the St. Philip Catholic Church, in the village of Ozubulo, in the south-east of Nigeria. Even more fierce and vile because he struck the faithful at the moment of prayer. Yet another slaughter of Christians confirms that we can not lower the guard against terrorism, which aims to suppress religious freedom. Hitting the religious symbols and people who believe in them means breaking one of the main and fundamental human rights. We cling to the pain of the relatives of the victims and wish the wounded a prompt healing. Solidarity, therefore, to the government of Nigeria, to which we are linked to feelings of friendship, and the full guarantee that Italy will always be alongside it in the fight against terrorism and religious extremism. “
