The Economic Community of Central African States (ECCAS) and the African Union (AU) institutions to which Equatorial Guinea belongs, condemned the terrorist attacks on June 15, at the premises of the Central Office and National Police School in N’Djamena (Chad), which killed approximately twenty people and wounded over one hundred.
The General Secretariat of the ECCAS condemns in the strongest terms this despicable act directed against institutions and symbols of the State of Chad and against innocent civilians.
Also, the community expresses its abhorrence against terrorism in all its forms and actions of groups like Boko Haram, Al Qaeda and the Islamic State. It also notes that these attacks require all State, subregional, regional and international organizations to find urgent, comprehensive and adapted solutions to the problem in the Sahel-Sahara strip.
Finally, it expresses its condolences and support to the Government and people of Chad.
Similarly, the African Union Commission flatly rejects such attacks, and shows solidarity with the Chadian people and the families of the victims. The continuation of actions against terrorism in the area should remain a priority, as stated by the president of the institution, Nkosazana Dlamini-Zuma.
