US Condemns Boko Haram Attack On Villages, Pledge Support To Fight Terrorism


The United States of America has condemned the raids on villages in the North-East, especially the killings of villagers in Baanu, Nganzai Local Government Area of Borno State on Friday.

While extending its condolence to the families of those killed and the injured the US noted that the latest killings were just examples of violence being perpetrated by the terror sect.

This was contained in a statement by the spokesperson for the US Department of State, John Kirby, on Monday.

It said, “These recent raids are just additional examples of the horrific and indiscriminate violence that Boko Haram continues to use to terrorise civilians in the North-East of Nigeria and the Lake Chad Basin region.

“August 27 marked the 500th day since Boko Haram kidnapped 276 girls from their school in Chibok.  We send our continued condolences to the families and loved ones of the girls who remain missing.  The kidnapping of the schoolgirls in Chibok galvanised international attention for the Boko Haram conflict.

“It is one of many attacks, kidnappings, raids and other acts of indiscriminate violence that continue on a frequent basis in Nigeria, Chad, Niger and Cameroon.” 

The US pledged its continued support to the governments and people of the Lake Chad Basin region in the countries struggle to defeat Boko Haram.

It added, “We contribute to these efforts through a number of security and counter-terrorism assistance programmes, which provide intelligence, advisors, training, equipment, and logistics.  We actively provide support on a bilateral basis and through the Multinational Joint Task Force, which the Lake Chad Basin countries and Benin are standing up to coordinate the regional efforts to counter Boko Haram.”The United States of America has condemned the raids on villages in the North-East, especially the killings of villagers in Baanu, Nganzai Local Government Area of Borno State on Friday.
