LAGOS, (CAJ News) – THE European Union (EU) has bemoaned the killing of more people amid incessant terror the Boko Haram is carrying out in the Northeast.

The latest terror involved two female suicide bombers striking a local camp hosting some 50 000 people, killing at least 58.

This came days after the violence perpetrated in north eastern Nigeria and southern Chad.

“Targeting innocent people, is unacceptable. Camps have to remain a place of shelter and protection,” said a EU spokesperson from Brussels, Belgium.

The EU expressed its full solidarity with the Nigerian government and people in the fight against terrorism in all its forms.

“This was most recently reaffirmed to President Buhari when he met with EU leaders earlier this month,” the spokesperson said.

The official said the fight against terrorism would again be high on the agenda at the upcoming EU-Nigeria Ministerial dialogue mid-March.

“The EU remains engaged to support the wider Sahel and Lake Chad region in their efforts to curb violence and terrorism.”
