António Guterres, the United Nations Secretary General, has condemned the terrorist attacks that took place earlier this week in Kossa, Cameroon, as well as in Borno state, Nigeria, which targeted vulnerable people already affected by Boko Haram violence.

“The Secretary-General extends his condolences to the people and Governments of Nigeria and Cameroon for the loss of life,” his spokesperson, Stéphane Dujarric, said in a statement.

“He wishes a speedy recovery to those injured and calls for those responsible for these repeated acts in the countries in the Lake Chad Basin to be swiftly brought to justice.”

Mr. Guterres also reiterated the UN’s solidarity and support to the Governments of the Lake Chad Basin countries in their fight against terrorism and violent extremism.
