The blasts occurred four days after the arrest in Brussels. of Salah Abdeslam, a suspected participant in November 2015, militant attacks in Paris that killed 130 people. Belgian police had been on alert for any reprisal action.

A statement signed by Buhari’s spokesperson, Femi Adesina said “The President assures Prime Minister Michel and the people of Belgium that having suffered the horror and anguish of incessant terrorist attacks over several years, Nigeria stands in full solidarity with them on this day of national pain and trauma.

“President Buhari believes that the appalling attack on Brussels reinforces the need for greater international cooperation to effectively confront and destroy global terrorism and its perpetrators.

“The President assures the global community that under his leadership, Nigeria will continue to work with other countries of the world to ensure that terrorism never triumphs over free, peaceful and law-abiding nations and people of the world.

“He wishes the more than 100 persons injured in the attacks a speedy recovery.”

ISIS has since claimed responsibility for the attacks.
