The United States Government has in a statement from the U.S department of state in Abuja strongly condemned the Easter bomb attacks in kaduna and Jos.
The US Government through the spokesperson for the state department, Ms. Victoria Nuland, also expressed its readiness to offer assistance to Nigeria to bring the perpetrators of the Easter bomb attacks to justice.
A car bombing near a church in Kaduna on Easter Sunday killed about 36 people, while another blast later in the city of Jos caused a number of injuries.
“To my knowledge, we have not been asked for any direct support for this investigation but obviously would be prepared to consider a request like that if it came to us.
“This violence has no place in a democracy; we support the Nigerian authorities in their efforts to bring the perpetrators of these violent acts to justice and we stress the importance nonetheless of respecting the human rights and protecting civilians in any security operation.” Victoria Nuland said in the statement.
