Amnesty Internationa has condemned the suicide bomb attack at Mandareri-Sambisa ward of Konduga Local Government Area of Borno State.
Osai Ojigho, Director Amnesty International Nigeria in a statement described the attack as a type of Boko Haram’s disdain on the sanctity of life and campaign targeting civilians.
The statement read: “These horrific suicide bomb attacks that killed at least 30 people and injured over 40 more bear all the hallmarks of Boko Haram and its vicious, unrelenting campaign targeting civilians.
“These unlawful attacks are typical of Boko Haram’s despicable disdain for the sanctity of human life. We are calling on Boko Haram and other armed groups to immediately stop targeting civilians.
“All those responsible must face justice for all the atrocities it has committed, including the use of children for suicide missions.“The Nigerian authorities must do more to protect civilians, especially in areas like Konduga that have frequently been targeted by Boko Haram.”
