The UN Humanitarian Coordinator in Nigeria, Myrta Kaulard, has condemned the twin suicide attacks in Damboa town of Borno state.
In a statement on Monday, Kaulard noted that the attacks which occurred on Saturday left several people dead and many others injured.
“Our deepest condolences go to the families of the victims in Damboa and to the Government and people of Nigeria. We wish the injured a speedy recovery,” she said.
Civilians consistently bear the brunt of the conflict and over 200 women, children and men have now been killed in indiscriminate attacks in the North-east since the beginning of the year, including in the town of Mubi last month in Adamawa State. I urge the Government of Nigeria to further step up protection of people,” the UN Humanitarian Coordinator added.
