The European Union has commiserated with Nigeria over the death of 50 people in Dalori, near the North-Eastern town of Maiduguri, Borno State.
“Our thoughts and condolences are with the families and friends of those affected,” the EU said in a statement, adding that in a bid to support the fight against terrorism in Africa, it would announce a contribution of 50 million euro at a donors conference in Addis-Ababa (Ethiopia) tomorrow.
“The EU remains committed to providing a comprehensive range of political, development and humanitarian support to Nigeria and the region in tackling this threat and in ensuring the sound development of the region,” the statement read.
France also condemned the attack. “We offer our condolences to the families of victims and the Nigerian authorities,” a statement by the Ministry of Foreign Affairs of the French Republic said.
“We call on the entire international community to do more to help countries in the region to overcome terrorism.”
