United States Vows to keep supporting Nigeria in fighting the Boko Haram Insurgency

On Sunday a suicide bomber blew himself up
inside a church in the restive northeastern city of
Potiskum, killing five worshippers.
“The United States strongly condemns the recent
attacks in northeastern Nigeria inflicted by Boko
Haram,” State Department spokesman John Kirby
said in a statement.
“We will continue to support Nigeria’s efforts to
bring those responsible for these attacks, as well
as previous attacks, to justice,” he added in
offering condolences to the families of the
victims.
Boko Haram appear keen to prove they are not a
spent force despite a four-nation military offensive
running them out of several towns and villages
they had controlled.
“As we have said before, the people of northern
Nigeria deserve to live free from violence and from
terror,” Kirby said.
