Nigeria is once again the target of terrorist violence.
The attack near the North-Eastern town of Maiduguri in Nigeria has left more than fifty people killed.
Our thoughts and condolences are with the families and friends of those affected.
Tomorrow at a donors conference in Addis-Ababa (Ethiopia), the EU will confirm its contribution of 50 million euro to assist countries of the region to fight terrorism.
The EU remains committed to providing a comprehensive range of political, development and humanitarian support to Nigeria and the region in tackling this threat and in ensuring the sound development of the region.
