The French President François HOLLANDE has sent a message of condolences to the Head of State in which he expressed his horror on hearing of the two attacks perpetuated on Thursday in Kerewa in the Far North Region of the country. On behalf of the French people, he extends his sincere condolences to the families of those who were killed in these horrible circumstances, while also wishing the wounded a speedy recovery.

These recent attacks only go to show that only a firm stand and cooperation between the countries of the Lake Chad Basin can bring an end to the terrorism. More than ever before, President HOLLANDE wrote, Cameroon can count on the resolute support of France in the fight that has been faced  with a lot of courage.
