?Our thoughts are with the families, friends and colleagues that have lost their loved ones in this heart-breaking tragedy.

?The whole nation shares the pain of the mothers, fathers, daughters and sons who have lost their loved ones. We are all in grief.?

Zuma, according to timeslive.co.za, said he had directed various government departments to ensure that relatives of the deceased were taken to Nigeria to identify their loved ones? bodies.

He added that the government wanted to ensure that the bodies were repatriated as soon as possible.

Zuma thanked the families of the deceased and the Nigerian government for their co-operation with the South African government.

He also extended his condolences to Nigeria and all other nations affected by this tragedy.

?May the souls of the departed compatriots rest in peace,? he said.
