The U.S Government strongly condemns the multiple bomb blasts in the city of Jos yesterday, as well as the bombing in the Sabon-Gari neighborhood of the city of Kano on May 18 that have resulted in the deaths of more than 100 people. These vicious attacks on defenseless Nigerian civilians and Boko Haram’s abduction last month of more than 200 girls in Chibok are unconscionable, terrorist acts demanding accountability and justice.
We extend our deepest condolences to the families of the victims. We continue to stand with the Nigerian Government and people in their efforts to defeat violent extremism in a manner that protects civilians and ensures respect for human rights.
