Ghana’s Foreign Minister and Memeber of Parliament for Awutu Senya West, Ms. Hanna Serwaa Tetteh denounced the killings, and called for rigorous efforts to fight terrorism on the African continent.

Ms. Tetteh posted on her handle on social media, twitter: “The killings of 44 people in a mosque in Nigeria is tragic & we mourn with the people of Nigeria. Terrorism should have no place in Africa,”.

Sunday’s attack took place in Konduga in Borno state, 35km (22 miles) from the state capital Maiduguri.
