The secretary-general called for those responsible for this attack to be swiftly brought to justice, said his spokesman, Stephane Dujarric in a statement.
The statement read, “The Secretary-General strongly condemns the attack on 5 May 2018 in Gwaska village, Kaduna State, northwestern Nigeria, which resulted in scores of casualties. “The Secretary-General expresses his deepest condolences to the bereaved families and to the Government and people of Nigeria, and wishes a speedy recovery to the injured.
