US Condemns Yobe Attack, Pledges To Support Nigeria In Fight Against Terrorism

The United States has condemned the attack on the Government Girls Secondary School, Dapchi adding that it would continue to support the Federal Government’s efforts to counter the terrorist group.

On Thursday, Spokesperson for the US Department of State, Ms Heather Nauert, said, “We are still trying to get all the details about that [Boko Haram attack], but we want to mention that we condemn in the strongest possible terms the terror attack on a school earlier this week in north-eastern Nigeria.

“The choice of targets, including schools, markets and places of worship, reflect the brutality of terrorist organisations. The victims of the attacks were girls who were simply seeking an education. We continue to support Nigeria’s efforts to counter the terror group.”

She added, “We also support Nigeria’s efforts to enable more than two million (persons) displaced in the Lake Chad region to return home safely. The United States continues to provide humanitarian assistance to those who were affected by the violence.”
