U.S. Condemns Nigeria’s Easter Attacks; Expresses Readiness To Assist

The U.S. Government has strongly condemned the Easter bomb attacks in Kaduna and Jos, expressing its readiness to offer assistance to Nigeria in its efforts to bring the perpetrators to justice.

In a statement from the U.S. Department of State in Abuja on Tuesday, Ms Victoria Nuland, Spokesperson for the department, said: “To my knowledge, we have not been asked for any direct support for this investigation but obviously would be prepared to consider a request like that if it came to us.

“This violence has no place in a democracy; we support the Nigerian authorities in their efforts to bring the perpetrators of these violent acts to justice and we stress the importance nonetheless of respecting the human rights and protecting civilians in any security operation.”
