Attacks in Northeast Nigeria
The United States condemns Boko Haram’s vicious attacks on Sunday in Borno and Adamawa, Nigeria, that took the lives of dozens of innocent civilians. We support Nigerian authorities as they begin to investigate these attacks, and urge citizens to support their efforts to bring the perpetrators to justice. The United States remains committed to supporting the people of northern Nigeria in their struggle against violent extremism and to helping the Government of Nigeria as it works to counter the threat posed by Boko Haram and associated groups.
