US: We stand firm with Nigeria in fight against Boko Haram
The United States has once again pledged its support for the fight against terrorism in North East Nigeria.
Spokesperson for the U.S. Department of State Ms Heather Nauert in a statement condemning Saturdays suicide bomb attack in Damboa, Borno state where scores of people were killed said the United States will continue to stand firmly with Nigeria in its fight against terrorism.
“This violent attack, aimed at civilians celebrating with their families and communities during the Eid el-Fitr holiday marking the end of the Muslim holy month of Ramadan, is a reminder of the depravity of those who commit such attacks against innocent people.
“We extend our deepest condolences to the families and friends of the victims who were injured and killed, and mourn all those who were lost,” the statement read.
