Nigeria, Gambia condemn drone attack against Saudi oil facilities

Abuja, Nigeria, September 17 (Infosplusgabon) – Nigeria and Gambia have condemned Sunday's drone attacks against two oil installations in Saudi Arabia.

 

The attacks against the Khurais and Abqaiq refinery plants knocked out about 5 million barrels per day of Saudi Arabia's production that sent oil prices rising.

 

Iranian-backed Houthi rebels in Yemen have claimed responsibility but the US says it has evidence that Iran was responsible, a claim dismissed by Iran.

 

Nigeria’s President Muhammadu Buhari on Monday said that his country stood in solidarity with Saudi Arabia following the attacks on the refinery plants at Khurais and Abqaiq.

 

In a statement by Presidential Spokesperson, Mr Femi Adesina, President Buhari stated: “We in Nigeria once experienced attacks on our own oil facilities. Those who sought, by doing so, to undermine governments of the day, did not succeed then – nor at any time."

 

“The attackers of Saudi Arabia will win no friends in the international community for their actions – whoever they may be and, however, certain they be in their cause,” the Nigerian leader added.

 

The Gambian government of its part said it was joining the international community in condemning "these barbaric acts that constitute grave threats to global peace and security".

 

It called for the redoubling of efforts to bring the "perpetrators of these heinous crimes and their backers to justice”.
