U.S Condemns Maiduguri’s Mosque Bombing

The United States through its Embassy in Nigeria has condemn the bomb blast that killed about 24 people in a village near Maiduguri, Borno State, Northeast Nigeria and also condole the families of the victims.

According to a statement by the Embassy obtained by Lagos Post; The United States condemns in the strongest terms the terrorist bombing at a mosque on March 16 near Maiduguri, the capital of Borno State in northeastern Nigeria.  Dozens of people were killed and injured.  We extend our deepest condolences to the families of the latest victims of Boko Haram’s senseless brutality.


Boko Haram continues to commit vicious attacks against innocent civilians, including children.  It has demonstrated repeatedly its disregard for the lives of the tens of thousands it has killed, raped, and injured and the millions it has displaced in the Lake Chad Basin region.


The United States will continue to support those affected by Boko Haram’s violence through ongoing humanitarian aid and victim support services.  We also remain committed to assisting our partners in the Lake Chad Basin region who are leading the fight to end Boko Haram’s wanton violence and restore peace.


If you recall, two female suicide bombers who were disguised as men bomb a mosque while prayers are ongoing early hour in Maiduguri.
