United States President Barrack Obama and United Nations Secretary-General, Mr. Ban Ki-moon, have condemned the bombings that took place in some parts of Kaduna and Plateau states on Easter Sunday.
The US Department of State in a media note obtained by our correspondent, stated that those behind the bombings that claimed over 30 lives in Kaduna and damaged several properties in Plateau states on Sunday should desist from such acts, saying that the development would slow down development in the country.
According to the US government, no amount of terror attacks and bombings could affect its relationship with the government of Nigeria,.
The US government added that it would continue to give assistance to Nigeria as a way to curb the activities of terrorist groups in the country.
The media note added that the Obama-led administration had been in good contact with the Nigerian government on how to mutually develop on the security aspect of the Bi-national relationship between both countries.
In his own reaction, Ban Ki-moon said that the Easter day terror attack was uncalled for as he offered his condolences to families of the victims, asking the Nigerian authorities to bring those responsible to justice.
He added that those behind the deadly attacks should be brought to book by the federal government to serve as deterrent to others that might want to unleash terror and threats on innocent people.
He said, “The Nigerian government should not relent in its determination to bring to justice all the perpetrators of the deadly acts of violence in order to make the country safe for both indigenes foreigners”.
