Co-ordinated attacks by Islamist militants in the northern Nigerian city of Kano on Friday killed about 150 people. A series of explosions ripped apart police buildings, passport offices and immigration centres around the city, which is now under a 24-hour curfew. Boko Haram militants said they carried out the attacks, which would be their bloodiest assault to date.

UN Secretary General Ban Ki-moon strongly condemned the multiple attacks across the northern Nigerian city of Kano, which resulted in large-scale casualties and massive destruction to property. In a message issued by his spokesperson, Mr. Ban voiced his solidarity with the Government and people of Nigeria, and expressed his hope for swift and transparent investigations into the attacks to ensure perpetrators are brought to justice. Mr. Ban also extended his sincere condolences to the people of Nigeria and to the bereaved families.

 The African Union on Saturday condemned the latest “terrorist” attacks in Kano. The chairperson of the commission of the African Union, Jean Ping, expresses AU’s condolences to the families of the victims and wishes those wounded a speedy recovery.”
