The United States strongly condemns the recent attacks on innocent civilians in Nigeria, including yesterday's disgraceful assault during church services at Bayero University in Kano. We are concerned about attacks on churches, news media, and government installations that increasingly target innocent civilians across Northern Nigeria. We condemn attempts by those in Nigeria who seek to inflame Christian-Muslim tensions, and support those who recognize Nigeria’s ethnic and religious diversity as one of the country’s greatest strengths. Our thoughts and prayers are with the families and loved ones of those who were killed and injured.
