The Africa Union has strongly condemned the terrorist attack on a village near Maiduguri, in North Eastern Nigeria, on Saturday, 30 January 2015, by the dreaded Boko Haram terrorist sect.

The attack left at least 65 people dead and 136 injured.

Condemning the attack, the Chairperson of the African Union (AU) Commission, Dr. Nkosazana Dlamini Zuma, called for stronger global cooperation in the efforts to prevent and combat terrorism.

Dlamini expressed AU’s solidarity with the Government and people of Nigeria and pay her condolences to the bereaved families.

She reiterated the AU’s determination to counter terrorism, through the Multinational Joint Task Force (MNJTF) that was established by the Member States of the Lake Chad Basin Commission (LCBC) and Benin to eliminate the Boko Haram terrorist group.

The chairperson said further that the AU at its 571st meeting held last month had pointed out the need for Member States and international partners to sustain their collective efforts towards effective tackling of terrorism and violent extremism in Africa.
