The United States has condemned this week’s bomb attacks in Kano and Jos, describing the incidents as unfortunate.
Suspected suicide bombers had attacked a market in Kano earlier in the week, while several others died in a similar attack in Jos, the capital of Plateau State, on Thursday.
The U.S in a statement issued through its Embassy in Abuja Friday said, “This senseless attack on the innocents in Jos’s commercial Terminus district follows on the heels of another bombing attack in Nigeria’s second largest city of Kano on December 10, in which four persons were killed and seven injured when two female suicide bombers attacked the Kantin Kawari Textile Market.
“The United States offers its deepest condolences to the families and loved ones of the persons killed and injured.
“The United States remains committed to supporting the people of Nigeria in their struggle to stop the depraved actions of Boko Haram and associated terrorist groups”.
