United Kingdom Foreign Secretary, William Hague, who condemned the double bomb attack in the marketplace in Jos, said such an onslaught would strengthen the international community’s resolve against terror.
The twin bombings in Central Nigeria killed over 100 people earlier this week.
“I condemn this cowardly, inhumane crime. My thoughts are with those who have been bereaved or injured,” said Hague.
“This attack on the market was a transparent effort to create tension between different groups in a city well known for its diversity where people of different ethnicities and religions live alongside each other. It has resulted in death and tragedy for both Christians and Muslims alike.”
Hague welcomed the restraint shown by the population in the face of this provocation and reiterated the United Kingdom’s continued support to the people of Nigeria.
“Last weekend in Paris the international community and regional leaders made clear their collective determination to support Nigeria and defeat the scourge of terrorism. The Jos attack has only strengthened our resolve.”
