Flagbearer of the New Patriotic Party Nana Akufo Addo has also condemned the terrorist attacks in Paris and sympathised with the families of the dead and injured.

"with utter shock and sadness. I join the rest of the world in sympathising with the families of the dead and the injured." He said.

In a terse statement Nana Akufo Addo said "President François Hollande and the French people need to be assured with deeds, not just words, that the world stands with France and stands ready to support them in the necessary fight against such evil."

Over 120 people have been killed in a terrorist attack experts say were coordinated in the French city of Paris Friday night.

The attack took place in six places almost at the same time.

France has declared a national state of emergency and has closed its borders.

Reports say eight of the gunmen who carried out the attacks are dead.

Below is the full statement

AKUFO-ADDO’S CONDEMNS PARIS ATTACKS

I received news of the terrorist attacks in Paris, which have left at least 153 people dead so far and several hundreds injured, with utter shock and sadness. I join the rest of the world in sympathising with the families of the dead and the injured.

I wish to condemn, unreservedly, these insane and cowardly acts. No religion or ideology justifies the killing of innocent people, and the world must stand up together against all the atrocities that go on around the world in a twisted understanding of religion or ideology.
