Eid-el-Fitr Celebration: US react over suicide bomb blast in Borno


The United States has condemned the attacks on Saturday night in Damboa, Borno State by suspected members of Boko Haram terrorists, which led to the death of several persons.

The U.S in a statement by Heather Nauert, spokesperson for the U.S. Department of State, said it stood firm with Nigeria in the fight against terrorism.

According to reports, no fewer than 32 persons were killed, while 84 others were injured when 6 suicide bombers detonated Improvised Explosive Devices in Damboa Local Government Area of Borno State.

“This violent attack, aimed at civilians celebrating with their families and communities during the Eid el-Fitr holiday marking the end of the Muslim holy month of Ramadan, is a reminder of the depravity of those who commit such attacks against innocent people.

“The United States stands firmly with Nigeria in its fight against terrorism.

“We extend our deepest condolences to the families and friends of the victims who were injured and killed, and mourn all those who were lost,’’ the U.S stated.
