The members of the Security Council condemned in the strongest terms last week’s multiple terrorist attacks in three communities including a UN humanitarian facility in Borno State.

The terrorists had struck on June 9 and 10 at Felo and Monguno against a UN humanitarian facility and on June 13 in Nganzai killing at least 120 killed and  injuring many.
The Security Council expressed its deepest sympathy and condolences to the families of the victims, as well as to the people and government of Nigeria and wished those injured a speedy recovery.

The Council commended the efforts of countries in the region, including through the Multinational Joint Task Force, to effectively combat terrorism and urged further progress.

It reaffirmed that acts of terrorism in all its forms and manifestations constitutes one of the most serious threats to international peace and security.

Members also underscored the need to bring perpetrators, organizers, financiers and sponsors of these reprehensible acts of terrorism to justice, and urged the states, in accordance with their obligations under international law and relevant Security Council resolutions, to cooperate actively with the Government of Nigeria and all other relevant authorities in the fight against terror.

“Any act of terrorism is criminal and unjustifiable, regardless of their motivation, wherever, whenever and by whomsoever committed,” the Council said in a statement dispatched via email to PerSecondnews.

The Council also reaffirmed the need for states to combat by all means, in accordance with the Charter of the United Nations and other obligations under international law, including international human rights law, international refugee law and international humanitarian law, threats to international peace and security caused by terrorist attacks.
