UK Minister for Africa livid at Boko Haram violence

20 July 2015, 10:55Okoro Chinedu

Lagos - The United Kingdom Minister for Africa, Grant Shapps, has expressed outrage at the incessant attacks by the Boko Haram sect.

The latest condemnation comes days after the attacks in Borno State killed more than 100 people during the celebration of Eid Al-Fitr.

The celebration marked the end of the Holy Ramadan fasting period.

“I am horrified by the attacks in North East Nigeria over the last two days. Over 100 people have been killed including in an attack targeting Muslim worshippers during Eid Al-Fitr. My thoughts and sympathies are with the victims and their families,” a livid Shapps said this past weekend.

He said the Boko Haram terrorist attacks in Nigeria and in the wider region had brought untold misery and suffering to people of all faiths and backgrounds in Nigeria and the region.

He reiterated the United Kingdom’s solidarity with Nigeria in the wake of the deadly Boko Haram violence that has claimed the lives of more than 13 000 people and displaced an estimated 2 million.

“The UK remains unwavering in our resolve to support Nigeria and its neighbours in their fight against terrorism,” said Shapps.
