The United States has strongly condemned the dual explosions in the Nyanya and Kuje areas of Abuja on Friday and the suicide bombings and militant attacks in Maiduguri and Adamawa on Thursday.

The US condemned the act in a statement by the United States Diplomatic Mission to Nigeria, Public Affairs Section on Saturday.

“We extend our deepest condolences to the families and loved ones of those killed and injured.

“These tragic events are stark reminders that violent extremists will stop at nothing to inflict horrific and indiscriminate harm upon innocent lives.

“In particular, Boko Haram’s reign of terror and sheer brutality have left thousands dead and millions displaced.

“The United States stands with the government and the people of Nigeria to defeat Boko Haram and other perpetrators of terrorism.

“Through our security and counter-terrorism assistance, our unparalleled commitment aims to help Nigeria achieve this goal”, the statement said.
