Nigeria (October 13, 2016)

France condemns the attack which killed almost 10 people and injured around 15 others on October 12 in Maiduguri. We also express our concern at the violence that took place in the northern part of the country during the Shiite celebration of Ashura.

We extend our condolences to the victims’ families and to the Nigerian authorities.

France supports Nigeria and its neighbors in the Lake Chad basin in the fight against terrorism.
