Lagos - The United Nations Secretary-General, Ban Ki-Moon, has called on the Boko Haram to cease terror attacks in Nigeria.

A spokesperson of the UN head said the Secretary-General condemned the Tuesday double suicide attack carried out by suspected elements of the group in the Dikwa Camp in Borno State, north-eastern Nigeria.

Ki-moon deplored the death of about 60 of internally displaced persons and injuries to many others.

“The Secretary-General extends his deepest sympathy and condolences to the Government and people of Nigeria and to the bereaved families. He also wishes a speedy recovery to those injured,” said a spokesperson.

“The Secretary-General calls for an end to all acts of terrorism and sectarian violence in the country.”

Ki-moon reaffirmed the support of the UN to Nigeria in its fight against terrorism, and reiterates his call for a comprehensive approach to preventing and countering the scourge of terrorism, and addressing its root causes in compliance with international humanitarian, human rights and refugee law.

More than 20 000 people have been killed and over 2 million displaced over the years the Boko Haram has carried out attacks.
