We are saddened by the terrorist attacks carried out on 15 August 2017 at a market and at the gates to a refugee camp in Maiduguri, the capital of Borno state in north-eastern Nigeria by three suicide bombers claiming many lives and leaving several people injured. We strongly condemn these attacks targeting innocent people and attempting to destabilize the region.
