President John Mahama has condemned the attacks on Cote D’Iviore and Turkey in which at least 16 people have died.
In a statement from the Ministry of Communications signed by Dr. Edward K. Omane Boamah, the President described the attacks as “despicable and unconscionable”.
On Sunday, March 13, news broke that some unidentified gunmen have attacked and killed some revellers at a beach resort in southern Cote d’Ivoire.
The BBC reported that at least 16 people lost their lives in the Al-Qaeda-linked militants attack in southern Cote d’Ivoire some 40km (25 miles) from the commercial capital Abidjan.
The resort is popular with both locals and foreigners. Four of the dead were Westerners, including a French and a German national, officials say.
In Turkey, an explosion in Guven Park in the Kizilay district, a key transport hub, wounded at least 125 people.
Although no group has claimed responsibility for the attack, government sources are casting suspicion on the outlawed Kurdistan Workers Party (PKK).
President Mahama expressed Ghana’s deepest condolences and sympathies to President Alassane Quattara of Cote d’Ivoire and Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan, their government and people. He also wished those injured a speedy recovery.
