#ZabarmariMassacre: US Govt. Condemns Attack On Farmers

The United States has condemned the brutal killing of farmers in Zabarmari, Borno by suspected Boko Haram terrorists that left 43 people dead.

The US Embassy in Nigeria, in a statement issued on Monday, tasked the Federal Government to unravel the killers of the slain farmers, adding that they should be brought to book.

While commiserating with the victims of the attack, the US explained that it stands with the Nigerian government in efforts to fight terrorism in the country.

“The United States condemns in the strongest terms the November 28 violent attack in Borno, Nigeria.  The United States offers our deepest condolences to the families and friends of those killed or kidnapped,” the statement read.

“These abhorrent attacks are a stark reminder of why the United States stands with the Nigerian government and people as they fight to defeat terrorism and work to bring the perpetrators to justice.”

Following the deadly attack, there has been conflicting figures on the number of casualties in the troubled northeast.

While the United Nations put the number of dead victims at 110, the military authorities insist that only 43 were killed.
