As reactions continue to trail Wednesday’s deadly bomb blast in the heart of the nation’s capital, the United Nations (UN), the European Union (EU) and the United States of America (USA) in different statements, have condemned the senseless bombing and killings of innocent Nigerians.

UN Secretary-General, Mr Ban Ki-moon, on Thursday, condemned the bomb attack, which took place at a busy shopping district in Wuse II, Abuja, in which 21 people were reportedly killed and 17 injured.

The European Union (EU) also condemned the bombing, saying the attack was the latest in a long series of violent acts of terrorizing the Nigerian population, including reports of further abductions of women and children in the North-East of the country.

In the statement, the EU expressed its deepest sympathy to the families of the victims and insisted that the perpetrators must be brought to justice and all those abducted by the terrorists must be brought home.

Similarly, the US government, on Thursday, condemned the bomb blast in Abuja, saying the heartless and violent attacks on innocent Nigerians were inexcusable and clearly bespoke the criminality of those behind the attacks.
