30 December 2015, 13:35Okoro Chinedu

Lagos - The United States has denounced the terror attacks Boko Haram has recently perpetrated in Nigeria and neighbouring countries.

The latest condemnation comes after deadly attacks were carried out in Maiduguri and Madagali, the terror prone cities of the Borno State.

“The United States condemns the terrible attacks carried out by Boko Haram in Nigeria, December 25–28, as well as other recent attacks in Cameroon, Chad, and Niger,” said Mark Toner, the Deputy Department of State Spokesperson, said.

Speaking from Washington, he noted Boko Haram had killed dozens of innocent people who were targeted as they went about their daily lives.

In Maiduguri and Madagali, these were attending service at a mosque and shopping in a neighborhood market respectively.

“We extend our deepest condolences to the families and loved ones of the victims and we stand with the people of Nigeria and the region in the fight against Boko Haram,” said Toner.

He maintained his country’s commitment to assisting Nigeria and the region eliminate the Islamic militant Boko Haram.

“The United States remains committed to helping Nigeria and its neighbours counter Boko Haram’s senseless acts of terror,” Toner said.

“Despite much progress over the past year—due in large part to newly bolstered Nigerian and regional efforts—more work remains to ensure the people of Cameroon, Chad, Niger, and Nigeria can live in peace.”

The conflict has affected the lives of communities across the Lake Chad Basin region, with some 20 000 people killed, 2, 5 million internall displaced people and more than 170 000 Nigerian refugees forced to flee their homes.
