I have just heard the sad news of another explosion in the town of Maroua, a third in less than 72 hours. While waiting for more precise information on the casualities from this third attack, it goes without saying that these vile acts against our civilians and soldiers and innocent compatriots also seek to disorient and instill fear in a population that is already traumatized by terrorist acts of extremists on our borders in the Extreme North region.
We need to redouble our vigilance and engage in strong mobilization of the population in symbiosis with the security services to track these installers of street bombs and eventually eradicate and free our country of jihadists and their adepts.
I hereby express my condolences to the bereaved families, and reassure them of our solidarity and our support and encouragement in these difficult times for them and for our fatherland.
