The EU’s reaction was made known in a statement by the EU Spokesperson for Foreign Affairs and Security Policy, Catherine Ray.
The international association said Boko Harma’s act of “Targeting children and abducting young girls as they seek to attend school is an attack on our common humanity.”
The EU also extended its solidarity with the affected families and Nigerians as a whole.
“The girls deserve freedom and a chance to shape their own future.
“The EU remains committed to supporting the Government of Nigeria in its fight against terrorism and all forms of criminality,” the statement read.
The EU further said “We stand resolute to continue our humanitarian and development work, including the rights and protection of girls.”
