U.S. Condemns Killing Of 3 Aid Workers In Borno

The United States (US) and others, yesterday, condemned the killing of three Nigerian aid workers in a Boko Haram attack on a military installation in Rann, Borno State.
The US Embassy, in a statement in Abuja, pledged its support to Nigerians, “as they bravely work to ensure their nation’s security.”

The statement added: “We extend our deepest condolences to the families of the victims and to every family whose loved ones have been affected by this and other terrorist acts.

“We voice our heartfelt solidarity with all those humanitarian workers who work every day to help Nigerians affected by the ongoing insurgency.

“We expressed sympathy for all those security forces and Nigerian citizens working together to end this terrorist violence.”

The Embassy said that the US remained firmly committed to ensuring humanitarian workers were protected and able to do their life-saving work.

Meanwhile, the military has reviewed the pattern of information management in all ongoing counter-insurgency operations and would henceforth communicate only successes, rather than strategies of operations.

Acting Director Defence Information (DDI), Brig-Gen. John Agim, said yesterday in a statement that this was the decision taken during the meeting of the Chief of Defence Staff (CDS), other Service Chiefs and Director General of Department of State Services (DSS) in Maiduguri.
