U.S. Condemns Terrorist Attacks in Far North

Wednesday, August 5, 2020

The U.S. Embassy condemns the horrific August 2 attack reportedly carried out by Boko Haram insurgents in Nguetchewe village, Far North Region, that left an estimated 19 people dead including many children, and seriously injured many others.  We offer our deepest condolences to the bereaved.  We note our concern that these senseless killings, in an area where displaced people had sought safety, will put at greater risk those who rely on humanitarian assistance for survival.
