WASHINGTON, D.C. — U.S. Representatives Steve Chabot (R-Ohio) and Sheila Jackson Lee (D-Texas), Co-Chairs of the Congressional Nigerian Caucus, released the following statement on the Boko Haram attack that killed 110 people in a village near Maiduguri over the weekend:

"We are devastated by Boko Haram's massacre of innocent Nigerians. We join all people of goodwill in extending our deepest sympathies to the people of Nigeria and the victims' families as they mourn these senseless killings. It is important for the Nigerian Government to hold Boko Haram and other terrorist groups accountable for such bloody attacks and to create a safe zone for the people of Borno State to be able to live without this horrific threat of violence. As Co-Chairs of the Congressional Nigerian Caucus, we will continue to stand in solidarity with the people of Nigeria as they seek justice for this crime and peace for their country."
