The United States condemns today’s terrorist attack in Mubi, Adamawa State and extends our sincere condolences to the Nigerian people and the families of the victims killed in the attack. That the victims were targeted and killed in a place of worship demonstrates yet again the brutal nature of the terrorists whose sole aim is to threaten the peace and security of Nigerian citizens. Such ruthless attacks on innocent civilians only serve to strengthen our resolve towards meeting these threats in cooperation with our Nigerian and regional partners.
