US rebukes "heartless" Abuja blast

26 June 2014, 15:35

Abuja - The United States has denounced the deadly bomb blast in Wuse II, Abuja on Wednesday.

The blast left more than 20 people dead and scores injured.

“These heartless and violent attacks on innocent Nigerians are inexcusable and clearly bespeak the criminality of those behind these attacks in Abuja and other parts of Nigeria,” a statement issued by the country’s Embassy in Abuja read.

“We extend our deepest condolences to the families of the victims and call on all Nigerians regardless of region or religion to join in and support efforts to put an end to this evil against humanity.”

The Embassy added that the United States remained committed to supporting the people of Nigeria in their struggle against violent extremism and to helping the Government of Nigeria as it worked to counter these threats to citizens and its national unity.

The blast at the upmarket shopping centre is the latest in a series of deadly bombings that have rocked some parts of the country in recent weeks.

The militant Boko Haram sect has claimed the majority of the blasts.
