Turkey's Foreign Ministry offered condolences Monday to the families of those who were killed or injured in a terrorist attack in Nigeria’s Borno state.

"We are saddened by the terrorist attack that took place in Nigeria’s Borno state on Feb. 9 which claimed many lives and left several people injured," the ministry said in a statement.

The ministry condemned the heinous attack and wished Allah's mercy upon those who lost their lives and a speedy recovery to the injured.

It conveyed its condolences to both the people and government of Nigeria.

At least 30 people were killed and a dozen others injured in the attack late Sunday by suspected Boko Haram militants, including a pregnant woman and a baby.
