Lagos - A United Nations envoy expressed outrage at the deadly suicide bomb attacks at a marketplace in Borno State on Wednesday morning.

The Special Representative of the Secretary-General for West Africa and High-level Representative of the Secretary General to Nigeria, Mohamed Ibn Chambas, said he was appalled by attacks that claimed scores of lives in Maiduguri, the state capital.

“Mohamed Ibn Chambas vehemently condemns these heinous and barbaric terrorist attacks on civilians. He urges the authorities in Nigeria to increase their response against the terrorist groups operating in the Northeast of the country. He calls for more vigilance and effort towards the protection of civilians,” read a statement from the United Nations Office for West Africa (UNOWA).

“The Special Representative is alarmed by the recent wave of terrorist attacks in the region and calls for their immediate cessation. He expresses his deep condolences to the families of the bereaved and to the people of Nigeria.”

The brutal Boko Haram sect has claimed responsibility for most of the bomb attacks that have claimed scores of lives in recent years.

Up to 60 people were reported dead after the latest attack in Maiduguri.
