Statement On The Recent Terrorist Attack In Borno State
Abuja, 17th March 2016


The Economic Community of West African States (ECOWAS) strongly condemns the continued repugnant terrorist attacks in Nigeria with the recent being on a mosque in Umarari Village, near Maiduguri, Borno State, which left 22 people dead and 18 injured.


These deplorable acts against humanity continue to be of deep concern to the International Community in the fight against terrorism. ECOWAS reaffirms its support to Nigeria in her effort in stemming the violent terrorist attacks and bringing perpetrators to justice. The Commission is committed, in Nigeria and in all Member States, to the creation of a broad anti-terrorism front aimed at eradicating the root causes.


ECOWAS expresses its deepest condolences to the victims and their families as well as to the people and Government of the Federal Republic of Nigeria and remains in total solidarity in the fight against terrorism.
