RE: Attempted terrorist attack on Delta-Northwest Flight 253

Listen to article

We, Nigerians in the Diaspora, under the auspices of the undersigned civil organizations, are appalled by the news of the attempted terrorist attack on Delta-Northwest Flight 253 from Amsterdam to Detroit on Friday, December 25, 2009.

News reports indicate the suspect is a Nigerian with ties to terrorist organisations. While information on the suspect is still sketchy, we feel compelled to condemn without reservation this alleged act of terrorism.

While we expect an official statement on this matter by the Nigerian government, we hope there will be a thorough investigation to determine how this security breach occurred and to ensure the safety of air travelers.
