UN Security Council condemned on Tuesday in the strongest terms the recent terrorist attacks perpetrated by Boko Haram group in northeast Nigeria and Chad.
Members of the Security Council extended their condolences to the families of the victims and their sympathy to all those injured, as well as to the peoples and the Governments of Chad and Nigeria.
In the statement, the Council reminded States that they must ensure that measures taken to combat terrorism comply with all their obligations under international law, in particular international human rights law, international humanitarian law and refugee law.
Ahead of the planned Summit between the Economic Community of West African States (ECOWAS) and the Economic Community of Central African States (ECCAS), the Security Council members urged the two sub-regional organizations, and their members, to adopt a common strategy and develop “active cooperation and coordination” to more effectively and urgently combat the threat posed by Boko Haram.
They also stressed the need to adopt a “comprehensive approach” to successfully combat Boko Haram and the threat it poses to the region.
