The militants in one of their latest attacks left dozens of people dead in Nigeria’s Northern town of Zaria region.
This comes amidst earlier atrocities of bombing and indiscriminate shooting into crowds of civilians.
The extremist group has recently stepped up its attacks in Nigeria, Niger and Chad by deliberately targeting Christian and Muslim worshippers.
In light of recent attacks, United Nations Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon has issued a statement strongly condemning the group for its wanton attacks on civilians.
He also expressed his heartfelt condolences to the families of the victims.
“The Secretary-General renews his calls to support the operationalization of the Multi-National Joint Task Force (MNJTF) through the provision of the requisite political, logistical, and financial resources and necessary expertise, consistent with international humanitarian, human rights and refugee law,” the statement concluded.
