ABUJA – The European Union has condemned the frequent attack on students in the North East of Nigeria.

In a statement made available to Vanguard Tuesday sad, “The latest act of terror perpetrated by a suicide bomber targeting a Government Senior School in Potiskum, Yobe state, killing at least 47 children and leaving over 79 injured is appalling.

The killing and abduction of innocent school children is always abhorrent. We express our deepest condolences to the families of the students killed, extend our sincere wishes to those injured for their full and speedy recovery, and call on the Nigerian Government to make a concerted effort to stop the insurgency and to bring those responsible to justice.

The EU is committed to supporting the fight against extremism and violence of this kind in accordance with the rule of law and respect of human rights. It stands ready to support the full range of policies necessary to address both the attacks and the underlying causes of this insurgency.”
